The immune system has evolved to mount robust responses to pathogens while maintaining tolerance to self or innocuous antigens such as those associated with commensal bacteria. Our general interest is to understand how this normal immunological function is ensured in health, and how it is dysregulated in disease, with an emphasis on the function and regulation of T lymphocytes.
