Current Research and Scholarly Interests Although stress has a bad reputation the fight-or-flight stress response is nature's fundamental survival system. Our laboratory elucidates mechanisms that mediate the newly appreciated immunoenhancing effects of short-term stress versus the well known immunosuppressive effects of long-term stress. We investigate stress effects on leukocyte trafficking, cytokine gene/protein expression, and innate/adaptive immunity, in preclinical & clinical models of skin immunity, vaccines, surgery, & cancer.
