Research Interests
I have had a long-standing interest in how antigens associated with dead cells can lead to immune tolerance, and have extensive experience with several different experimental models of tolerance, including ocular immune deviation, i.v. tolerance, tolerance induced by the peripheral deletion of soluble silver-stimulated T cells, and tolerance (immune suppression) induced in a mouse model of sepsis.
