Research Overview

My laboratory is in its second decade of investigating costimulation, adjuvants, and inflammatory responses during T cell-priming, -effector differentiation and -memory formation. Our team-oriented collaborations with other basic scientists and clinicians have led to publications, joint mentoring of graduate students and postdocs, and our weekly lab meetings. Collectively, our work is collaborative, important for the field and authentically a multi-PI approach.
