Ita Askonas and her influence in the field of antigen presentation.
Unanue ER., McMichael AJ.
This volume on antigen presentation is dedicated to Brigitte Askonas. We summarize here her many contributions to immunology and the impact that her career had on many of us. Critical experimental work on antigen presentation was done in her laboratory under her direction, first examining responses to protein antigens, later examining viruses as she turned her attention to the immunology of infections.
