Area of Study:

B cell immune responses and their role in inflammatory disease

Fields of Interest:

-B cells
-T cells
-Germinal Center Responses
-Multiple Sclerosis
-Chronic Inflammation

Research Profile

The immune system is best known for protecting us from infections, but it can also cause diseases. We are interested in how one type of immune cell, called B cells, become activated to be protective or cause disease. We also want to understand how these cells contribute to inflammatory damage in autoimmune disease and other chronic inflammatory conditions.
