    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory's goal is to address fundamental and therapeutic questions in immunology using innovative nanotechnological and biophysical approaches to visualize and manipulate cells. Our primary focus is on understanding the molecular controls that balance T cell activation versus tolerance. The ultimate aim of our work is to manipulate T cell signaling pathways to control immunologically-mediated diseases.

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our group uses molecular biology, biochemistry, and cellular immunology to investigate the activation and effector function of T lymphocytes. Research in the laboratory is currently focused on three areas: granulysin, a lytic molecule expressed late (7-12 days) after T cell activation; identification of correlates of immunity in diseases such as tuberculosis; and tolerance. The long term goal of this work is to develop new ways to treat human disease.

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests I have an interest in developing and applying high dimensional proteomic analysis to pediatric systemic inflammatory disease and immunodeficiency disorders, with the goal of translating this directly to patient care by identifying targets for therapy and new risk stratifications based on functional read-outs. Specifically, I am interested in understanding innate immune signaling and cytokine networks in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and primary immunodeficiency with inflammatory complications, as well as normal innate immune development and the relationship between the two. I am currently working with Dr. Garry Nolan, in whose laboratory mass cytometry was initially developed and applied to the understanding of normal immunophenotype and signaling in peripheral blood samples. I am developing expertise in single-cell mass cytometry analysis of human peripheral blood samples and the different data analysis methods of high dimensional datasets. I continue to enjoy an active role in caring for children with inflammatory and immunodeficient disorders.

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My laboratory has two major research interests. First, to define cellular and molecular mechanisms that limit T cell responses to vaccines and pathogens during normal early postnatal development and in cases of inherited genetic immunodeficiencies. Second, to determine how these limitations in immunity can be overcome by using novel approaches for vaccine adjuvants, with a particular focus on anti-viral vaccines.
