Kay L. Medina, Ph.D., studies B lymphocyte biology. B lymphocytes are a special category of white blood cells that produce antibodies to fight infection. Defects in B cell development or function can increase susceptibility to infection, cancer or autoimmune disease.
Dr. Medina's laboratory uses high-resolution multiparameter flow cytometry, mouse models, and short- and long-term culture models together with confocal and multidimensional microscopy techniques to study the generation and function of mouse and human B lymphocytes in health, aging and leukemogenesis.
The overall goals of Dr. Medina's research are to:
Learn about clinical trials that address specific scientific questions about human health and disease.
See my studies.
Explore all research studies at Mayo Clinic.
See the peer-reviewed findings I have published as a result of my research.
Review my research fingerprint, network, grants, projects, publications, Scopus profile, and Altmetrics scores and badges.
