Microbiology, Immunology and Infectious Diseases

Active Mentor - currently hosting PULSe students for laboratory rotations and recruiting PULSe students into the laboratory; serves on preliminary exam committees

Current Research Interests:

Our lab is interested in the mechanisms that regulate neutrophil migration and activation, more specifically their response to tissue injury and infection. The neutrophil is a hallmark of inflammation and neutrophilic inflammation, if not properly resolved, is the driving force behind a spectrum of human inflammatory diseases. Hopefully, our understanding of neutrophilic inflammation will help alleviate diseases such as arthritis, cancer and auto-inflammation. We are also interested in understanding pathogen-host interactions using zebrafish model and the strength relies on the combination of the genetics in both systems. We want to create a lab where happy scientists do solid science.
