About the scientist

Lise Kveberg

Post doctoral fellow

The NK research group (NKRG) focuses on the biology and recognition mechanisms of Natural Killer (NK) cells, which constitute an important part of our innate immune defense against neoplastic and virally infected cells, and react with normal allogeneic cells. One main focus is on the characterization of several families of lectin-like receptors on NK cells and their roles in immune responses against diseased cells.
