Our goal is to understand immunological principles of Th2 immunity in the context of allergic disease, particularly as it pertains to acute allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) and its modulation by the microbiota, the maintenance of IgE immunity (memory responses), and the impact of allergic disease in the development of other pathologies.
Our lab has a marked translational identity, which has been achieved through research in pre-clinical models of allergic disease and a close collaboration with clinicians.
We are constantly seeking for new members that are highly motivated and have strong critical thinking skills!
