My research interests focus on immune regulation, and my research program is based on the premise of taking genetically defined immune deficiencies from humans and modeling these diseases in the laboratory.  Since I see patients with immune deficiencies and inflammatory disorders, the first step in this program is to define the immune deficiency in these patients.  Using genetic technologies, such as copy number variation analysis, targeted gene sequencing, and next generation genetic sequencing, we have been successful at defining several primary immune deficiencies, and have used these findings to model these diseases in the laboratory to help us understand immunity and immune regulation.
