Ferhat Ay, Ph.D., works to understand gene regulation in complex organisms and diseases.
Christopher Benedict, Ph.D., studies the strategies that viruses use to escape detection by our immune system.
Hilde Cheroutre, Ph.D., and her team study the development, function, and regulation of T lymphocytes, a type of white blood cells.
Shane Crotty, Ph.D., and his team study immunity against infectious diseases. They investigate how the immune system remembers infections and vaccines.
Alba Grifoni, Ph.D., studies immune response to viral infections through a combination of bioinformatics and experimental approaches. Her work is important for understanding how T cell responses recognize a range of pathogens, including Coronaviruses (SARS-CoV-2 and other subgenera), Orthopoxviruses (Mpox and Vaccinia), and other emerging pathogens.
Catherine "Lynn" Hedrick, Ph.D., and her lab members study and target monocytes to aid in the prevention of cancer. The lab also investigates neutrophil heterogeneity in cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Patrick Hogan, Ph.D., studies cells at the nano level – seeking to understand how protein-protein interactions on the submicroscopic scale can have gargantuan impacts on human health and disease.
Toshiaki Kawakami, M.D., Ph.D., and his team study allergic diseases such as asthma, allergic rhinitis, food allergy, and atopic dermatitis.
Mitchell Kronenberg, Ph.D., and his team study T cells – white blood cells responsible for recognizing and responding to foreign invaders, such as microbes.
Lindestam Arlehamn Lab
My laboratory is focused on understanding T cell immune responses to Mycobacterium tuberculosis and other infections, as well as self-antigens
Myers Lab Laboratory for Immunochemical Circuits
Samuel Myers, Ph.D., studies the signaling circuits that drive the behavior of individual immune cells and ultimately orchestrate systemic immune responses.
Bjoern Peters, Ph.D., and his lab members are focused on the development of computational tools to address fundamental questions in immunology.
Erica Ollmann Saphire, Ph.D., studies, at the molecular level, how and why viruses are pathogenic. This work provides the roadmap for medical defense.
Dr. Schmiedel is dedicated to shedding light on the genetic mechanisms driving the pathogenesis of human diseases. His research is revealing molecular features regulating immune cell function to enhance our understanding and advance disease diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.
Stephen Schoenberger, Ph.D., is focused on achieving a mechanistic understanding of the generation and regulation of T cell responses in the context of in vivo infection and tumor development.
Alessandro Sette, Dr. Biol. Sci., defines in chemical terms the specific structures (epitopes) that the immune system recognizes and uses this knowledge to measure and understand immune responses.
Greg Seumois, Ph.D., and his team, have developed an innovative and highly translational set of genomics and molecular tools to discover, characterize and investigate the role of new types of immune cells in relation with asthma severity and respiratory allergies.
Sonia Sharma, Ph.D., and her lab members lead unbiased, genome-scale approaches to unravel innate immunity, the body’s early immune response to microbial pathogens and neoplastic cells.
Sujan Shresta, Ph.D., and her team study the immunology and virology of mosquito-borne human pathogens such as dengue virus and Zika virus.
Pandurangan Vijayanand, M.D., Ph.D., and his lab members employ genomics tools to understand, diagnose and treat pulmonary disease such as asthma, lung cancer and infectious diseases, including the novel coronavirus.
