General Overview |
Cutting edge projects focusing on the innate immune mechanisms leading to adaptive immunity. These projects include novel pathways that regulate macrophages, and T cells, macrophage biology linked to autoimmune disease, determining the unique and shared role of the principle macrophage developmental molecules in immune mediated inflammation, and the power of the programmed death pathway in regulating tissue injury. Furthermore, studies focus on tissue regenerative pathways mediated by resident cells and macrophages, and inflammation that fails to resolve and leads to disease. Unique transgenic strains and knockout mice with reporter genes have been constructed on autoimmune susceptible strains for these projects. These projects dissect the basic mechanisms of autoimmune disease (kidney, skin, heart) and have human translational components.
