Dr Ralph Steinman, Rockefeller University, was awarded for his discovery of the dendritic cell. Dr. Steinman’s research focuses on the mechanisms employed by dendritic cells to regulate lymphocyte function in tolerance and immunity, as well as the use of dendritic cells to understand the development of immune-based diseases and the design of new therapies and vaccines. www.rockefeller.e......
Ralph Steinman (1943 – 2011) was born in Montreal.
