Research Interests:

The Translational Immunology Laboratory works on the balance between tolerance and immunity in T cells. The laboratory has projects within three major programs

  • Understanding the genetic and immunological basis of patients with monogenic immune dysregulation
  • Dissecting the role of regulatory T cells in the tissues during disease
  • Identifying the molecular partners controlling lineage plasticity in CD4 T cells

The laboratory has strong technical expertise in clinical immunology, genetics, murine genome engineering and high-dimensional flow-cytometry.
