TCR Discovery Platform

HI-TRON Mainz functional units are the institute's operational core units. All functional units are headed by highly qualified scientists. The T-Cell Discovery Platform is the first of HI-TRON Mainz functional units. Here, cancer-specific T-cell receptor candidates are to be identified, characterized, isolated and functionally characterized. Thus the T-Cell Discovery Platform builds the basis for further projects.
