Our research interests in the laboratory focus on the innate and adaptive immune system and their role in immune-mediated diseases. Our group has a broad range of research interests that include:

  • The fundamental process of T cell activation versus tolerance
  • Regulatory T cells (Treg)
  • Neonatal immunity
  • Immune diseases of the esophagus and GI tract
  • Vaccines and vaccine adjuvants
  • Viral infections

Our clinical research projects offer drug therapies to selected patients. You can learn more about our research by visiting our Pediatric Immunology division Web site.
