Research

My research group is studying the molecular and cellular basis for homing of leukocytes to sites of inflammation. In particular, we study the biology of adhesion molecules responsible for the binding and emigration of leukocytes across vascular endothelial cells. These adhesion events are crucial to the processes of inflammation and atherosclerosis, as well as to both the afferent and efferent arms of acquired immunity.
