Mapping the Immune Response in Complex Disorders
Our laboratory uses a multidisciplinary approach that includes proteomics, immunology, biochemistry, and molecular biology to decipher complex disorders through molecular profiling of patients’ immune responses. We are focused on conducting translational research aimed at identifying novel diagnostic biomarkers, understanding disease mechanism, and finding therapeutic targets.
