Special Interests

We are interested in understanding how the immune system is dynamically regulated through cellular interactions and environmental cues. Using methods including in vivo microscopy and flow cytometry our goals are to elucidate mechanisms of immune activation and tolerance in autoimmunity, with the goal of developing therapeutic approaches for regulating the immune response.

  • Immune dynamics and interactions at the autoimmune disease site during type 1 diabetes
  • Development of therapeutic for antigen-specific tolerance induction

Patient Ratings

The Patient Rating score is an average of all responses to care provider related questions on our independent rating system, the Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. This survey is about the patient care experience and does not address crucial characteristics like medical decision-making, prescribing the best therapy, and patient outcomes.

Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the best score. Learn more about our patient satisfaction survey.
