Pauline van Schouwenburg

Laboratory for Pediatric Immunology, Department of  Pediatrics, WAKZ, Leiden University Medical Center

Dr Pauline van Schouwenburg works on the intersection of immunology and bio-informatics. She combines state-of-the-art techniques such as single cell RNA sequencing and B-cell receptor repertoire analysis to investigate B-cell maturation and B-cell receptor specification. In 2015 she received a prestigious Dutch Veni grant allowing her to study B-cell development in primary immunodeficiency disorders, such as common variable immunodeficiency. Currently, her primary research focusses on studying B-cell and B-cell receptor development in the germinal centre of healthy individuals, immunodeficient patients and patients suffering from immune dysregulation associated with auto-immunity. Within Target-to-B! she is coordinating BCR repertoire analyses in WP2 and 5.
