November 2014 Research Spotlight:
Dr. Diane Bimczok, DVM, PhDDr. Diane Bimczok is Assistant Professor in the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, where she works with Dr. Phillip Smith and Dr. Lesley Smythies. Dr. Bimczok has a D.V.M. and a Ph.D. in Immunology from the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover, Germany. She first joined UAB in 2007 for postdoctoral training in human mucosal immunology with Dr. Smith. Her current work is funded through an NIH K01 career development award and through the American Gastroenterological Association.
Dr. Bimczok's research focus is the regulation of dendritic cell (DC) function in the gastrointestinal immune system. DCs are professional antigen-sensing and -presenting cells that control tolerance and immunity. They initiate and fine-tune the responses of T cells and other adaptive and innate immune cells. The function of a particular DC is partly determined by the tissue microenvironment the cell is exposed to, as Dr. Smith's group has shown in previous studies.
