Novel mechanisms regulating B cell activation

Bebhinn is Assistant Professor at the university of Toronto, Canada since 2011. Her current research investigates the potential for extracellular regulatory mechanisms for receptor organization, such as glycan-based domains generated by the binding of galectins to cell surface glycoproteins. The galectins are a family of lectins that can bind ?-galactoside on cell surface glycoproteins to form an extracellular molecular lattice. Her laboratory uses advanced optical microscopy techniques to explore how these cell-surface scaffolding proteins could modulate the interaction, function and turnover of immune cell glycoproteins.
