“We study the pathogenesis of autoimmune-associated lung disorder through translational approaches in mouse and human studies.  The major goals of the lab include 1) uncovering genetic underpinnings of autoimmune-associated lung disease using next generation sequencing 2) defining the specificity of the immune response in paatients with lung autoreactivity 3) defining immune effecor mechanisms of lung autoreactivity in animal models. Specific projects include: deciphering the role of intacellular trafficking in the generation of autoimmunity; defining the role of the lung as a site of initiation for autoimmune arthritis; and understanding how the loss of self-tolerance to lung antigens leads to the generation of autoimmune lung disease."
