Lymphocyte Activation, Inflammation

Research Interests

We are interested in the role that endothelial cells (the cells that line blood vessels) play in activating and modulating immune responses. In particular we study T cell activation, costimulation, the regulation of T cell transcription factors, cytokine synthesis and have recently initiated a project looking at induction of T cell motility.
