    Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in engineering and using tools which can capture the complex interactions of the immune system more holistically. Understanding the immune system at a systems level will be even more critical as we try to engineer it for therapy. This will enable unique innovations in therapies overcoming several challenges of current immunotherapies: (1) ineffective for a large subset of patients, (2) non-specific, causing immunocompromised or autoimmune states, (3) costly, (4) not well modeled or predicted by in vitro tests and animal models, and (5) treat symptoms rather than cure disease.
