Research Summary
My research group has an interest in the pathogenesis of immune defects. We are particularly interested in cells of the innate immune system including dendritic cells and neutrophils. Several of our projects focus on cell migration and in particular, how the actin cytoskeleton regulates motility. We are currently working to understand how defects of dendritic cell function contribute to the basis of immunodeficiencies that we see in the clinic.
Teaching Summary
I have supervised and continue to supervise several PhD students and Clinical Research Fellows for laboratory based projects.
