Dendritic cells and the complement system are essential parts of our innate immune system. They can recognise and eliminate a wide variety of potentially dangerous compounds and pathogens, and then present these to the adaptive immune system. Until recently, DR cells and the complement system have mostly been studied separately. Anouk Zaal investigates the interplay between the activation of these two components of the innate immune system, focusing on the role of specific receptors.
