Molecular immunology and autoimmunity
Autoimmune diseases occur when the immune system turns against the body's own tissues, resulting in immune-mediated destruction. We aim to understand the development of autoimmune diseases and the basis for the loss of immunological tolerance to self-antigens. A major focus is to understand the role of regulatory T cells in protection from autoimmune disease, with the ultimate goal of discovering ways to treat autoimmune disorders.
