Hedda Wardemann, PhDProfessor and Head, Division of B Cell Immunology at German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ)
Hedda Wardemann is a B cell immunologist with a primary interest in antibody repertoires and
the functional evolution of human B cell antibody responses. She uses single-cell immunoglobulin
gene repertoire analyses to measure the diversity and to track the clonal evolution of B cells in
health and disease. In combination with antibody cloning she aims to assess the quality of human
B cell responses and to develop tools to direct antibody responses by targeted interventions, e.g.
through vaccination, with a special focus on human Plasmodium falciparum malaria.
