Research Description

We develop interdisciplinary approaches and tools to study how the immune system functions across biological scales ranging from individual molecules and cells, to tissues, to a mammalian organism. We aim to characterize the multi-scale processes at play during protective immune responses, and use this information to manipulate immunity against disease.
