Our Research

Our research focuses on autoimmune skin diseases. We are interested in understanding how autoimmunity occurs, including triggers and immunopathogenesis, and what we can do to stop it through development of treatment options. We use several different models to study pathology, with an emphasis on immune cell migration and function in the skin, and cross-talk between the immune system and the skin itself.
