Description of Interests

My laboratory is interested in understanding the mechanisms behind allergic diseases...

Why do they develop?
What controls them?
How can we stop them?
We are interested in understanding this from the point of view of the immune system and have several projects that focus on the mast cell.
a mast cell releasing its granules
A mast cell releasing its granules

This tissue-resident cell is best known for being able to release histamine but we believe it plays a much more complex role than just this final part in an allergic reaction. We employ both preclinical studies and clinical work in our studies. One of our main goals is to better understand food allergy and we use animal models of anaphylaxis, as well as clinical studies on patient biopsy material to explore this. More information about us and our research is available at our personal webpage below.
