I was thrilled to join Stanford’s newly formed Center for Genetic Immune Diseases (CeGID) after my experience researching the complexities of transplantation and rejection at UCLA’s Immunogenetics Center. CeGID aims to transform the lives of patients with immune deficiencies by uncovering the genetic causes of their diseases, developing innovative treatments, and eventually curing patients. My specific role within this center involves designing advanced diagnostic assays for phenotyping and functional assessment of immune cells to validate genetic mutations as pathogenic causes of disease. More broadly, I work to investigate novel gene mutations in order to provide a better understanding of damaged pathways and human biology, with the ultimate goal of discovering new and innovative treatments for a diverse and unique population of patients.
