Bio


Dr. Oberst's research focuses on understanding how different forms of cell death occur, and how they influence immune responses in vivo. Multicellular organisms are complex communities cooperating of cells, and the death of some cells is required for the community to survive and thrive. His work studies the effect of each type of cell death in vivo, with the goal of understanding their role in processes such as inflammation, autoimmunity, tumor suppression, and immune responses to pathogen infection.
