Immunology

research description:

The  work  in  my  lab  focuses  on  basic  immunology,  inflammation,  and  autoimmunity,  which  enhances the immunology focus group, especially since the majority of members study immunology  related  to  microbiology  or  cancer.  We  also  study  how  the  citrullinating  enzymes  PAD2 and PAD4 impact immune cells and inflammation. Since these enzymes are also involved with transcriptional regulation, our work has a secondary focus in molecular biology.
