Research Interests

The Boudreau laboratory investigates the role of immunogenetic diversity in controlling NK cell function and education. We are interested in the novel application of NK cells and NK-targeting therapies for precision medicine. We use polychromatic flow cytometry (5-colour Fortessa, Dalhousie Core), qualitative and quantitative molecular methods (NGS, Luminex, ddPCR, qPCR), and
humanized mouse models to investigate NK cell function. Our research is strengthened by a library of KIR and HLA genotyped, phenotyped PBMC from healthy donors.
