The migration and search behavior of immune cellsReza Shaebani and •Franziska Lautenschläger — Saarland University, Saarbrücken

Immune cells have a variety of tasks in the body. For example, dendritic cells act as the *sentinels* searching for pathogens. For this search, the cells need to scan a certain area in an effective way. Here, we investigate how cells optimize the search of such area. We have shown before that all cell types show a correlation of migration speed and persistence [1]. We later found that cells which strongly correlate these two parameters are particularly good at searching objects [2]. Interestingly, we found that cells do not keep the memory of their speed as long as the memory of their persistence [3]. Now, we investigate how we can disturb this migration and search behavior, preferable by altering the cytoskeleton [4].
