Research and Clinical Interests

Our research projects are aimed at understanding the molecular and cellular regulation of lymphocyte activation. We use real-time microscopic methods to image the dynamic movement of lymphocyte receptors during antigen recognition. We also design, build, and exploit emerging tools to study how collections of immune cells cooperate and are regulated in the lung during asthma and damage and in immunoevasive tumors.
