Research Activities

Transcriptional/molecular regulation of peripheral lymphocyte differentiation - particularly antigen-specific effector and memory T cell generation and maintenance.
Induction of protective immunity in acute and persistent infections.
Differentiation, activation and maintenance of dendritic cells in pathogen infections.

Techniques/Expertise

In vivo models of infection - isolation, phenotyping and functional analysis of T cells and dendritic cells; molecular analysis (including bioinformatics, microarrays, various sequencing approaches) of immune cells, retroviral transduction, transgenic/knockin - conditional and reporter mice.
