Research Interests
The primary focus of my laboratory is directed towards understanding the mechanisms underlying the involvement of immunoglobulin Fc (GM) and Fc gamma receptor genes in immunity to various malignant and infectious diseases. These studies are supported in part by grants and contracts from the National Institutes of Health and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
