Areas of Interest: The overall focus of my laboratory has been on understanding the transcriptional regulation of T helper cells as they regulate inflammatory immunity. My laboratory’s multi-level approach, performing hard-core studies on transcription factor-dependent gene regulation, defining transcription factor-mediated changes in cell function in vitro and in vivo, and ultimately showing conservation in human samples, and where possible, linkage to human disease, continues to be a strength in our studies.  I have collaborated with physician-scientists at IU to examine immune and lung function in infants and toddlers with atopic dermatitis.
