Dominik Schenten

Assistant Professor

Dominik Schenten trained for his Ph. D. with Klaus Rajewsky at the University of Cologne and Harvard University, studying the development and function of Germinal Center (GC) B cells. For his post-doctoral training, he joined the laboratory of Ruslan Medzhitov at Yale University, where he studied the mechanisms of innate control of adaptive immunity. He joined the faculty of the University of Arizona in 2013.
