Our research interests in the laboratory focus on the role of human T cells, specifically natural regulatory T cells (Treg, in immunological diseases. We aim to differentiate the mechanisms of action of regulatory T cell suppressive function. We study how pollution, such as diesel exhause, disrupt Treg suppressive function and how chemokines, like lymphotactin, enhance Treg suppressive function. We also study Treg function in tolerance.
