Cancer Focused Research:

My research focuses on the immune function of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class Ib molecules in normal and diseased states. My lab is interested in understanding how MHC class Ib-restricted T cells are selected and regulated during development and how they contribute to the control of autoimmunity, anti-tumor immunity and infectious diseases. My lab is also interested in identifying microbial antigens recognized by MHC class Ib-restricted T cells with the goal of developing new T cell-based vaccines for microbial infection.
