Our lab studies the signaling and transcriptional regulation of allergic immune responses and T helper cell differentiation in general.  Specificially, we actively investigate three areas of research—T helper cell differentiation, innate type-2 effector cell differentiation, and interaction between CD4 Th cells and bone marrow allergic progenitor cells.
