Research Interests

My project is to better understand the molecular mechanisms that confer Type 1 Regulatory T-cell, also known as Tr1 cells.  We are investigating through transcriptome analysis, potential biomarkers and transcription factor(s) that are unique to Tr1 cells in order to better characterize the role in regulating the immune system in healthy people and diseased patients. Advancing our understanding of Tr1 cells will enable us to better use in vitro derived Tr1 cells to cure graft versus host disease and pediatric acute myeloid leukemia.
