Research Description:

My research focuses on the molecular mechanism(s) underlying the establishment of peripheral T cell tolerance, the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases, and neuroimmune regulation. Using murine models of autoimmune disease and cancer, my current investigations include 1) how activtion of GABA receptors modulates T cell autoimmunity, inflammation and anti-tumor immune responses; 2) development of antigen based immunotherapies to peripheral T cell tolerance. These studies may aid in design of immunotherapies for autoimmune and inflammatory diseases and cancers.
