Research Interests

  1. Mechanisms driving neogenesis of ectopic GC-like areas in chronically inflamed tissues are unclear. My interests involve the study of chemokines and other TNF family members that induce formation of secondary lymphoid organs during normal development and the role that they play during the inflammatory response.
