    Collapse overview
    We are a multidisciplinary team with a passion for understanding immune T-cell responses in health and diseases. We study Tregs, unique cells in our body that specialize in preventing autoimmune diseases. We take the unique perspective to look at cellular interactions, i.e. how Tregs talk to other cells to do maintain tolerance, promote tissue homeostasis, and contribute to pathogenesis. We explore the role of Tregs directly in human tissues using Systems and Synthetic Biology approaches that illuminate these interactions.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
