I have a strong interest and research background in the study of dysregulated B lymphocytes, B cells, that characterize clinical disease such as autoimmune disease and humoral immune deficiency. My current research projects are aimed at the study of humoral immune deficiency, specifically common variable immune deficiency or CVID and the dysregulation of B cells in the generation of lymphoma and autoimmune disease.
Other ongoing research projects include characterizing the molecular and cellular events that cause a common disease, chronic idiopathic urticaria or CIU and rare disorders idiopathic anaphylaxis and idiopathic angioedema.
