Research

My research focuses on how the immune system combats infection and how the microorganisms that normally inhabit the body protect against infection. My laboratory is also investigating mechanisms that prevent invasive fungal infections and the role immune cells called T lymphocytes play in fighting bacterial infections. This work is providing fundamental insights that will enable us to optimize the body’s immune defenses against the range of clinically important infections.
