Biomarkers and Host/Pathogen Interactions

My research involves molecular immunology, transplant immunology, and immunogenetics. My laboratory studies the intracellular pathogen, Leishmania, to gain an understanding of cell-surface protein interactions with the host immune system. We also study the modulation of host macrophage gene expression by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, a major pathogen worldwide. My lab has also developed processes for quantitative plasma proteomic biomarker discovery and tools for microarray based biomarker discovery analysis.
