Our research

The goal of the Laboratory of Immunology is to perform cutting edge, quality research in immunology and infectious diseases that is designed to better understand the normal physiologic state and the processes which perturb it, with special emphasis on inflammatory mechanisms in the eye as a model system. In pursuit of this goal we capitalize on the unique research environment at NIH and the constant interaction between clinician and basic researcher. We recognize and support creativity and individualism under the umbrella of programmatic needs in order to maintain a strong basic research portfolio and achieve the rapid translation of insights gleaned from that research to the bedside.
