Faculty Member Brief Research Description
Mike Bachman The immune response to bacterial iron metabolism  
Vern Carruthers Pathogenesis of parasitic infections: Mechanisms of cell invasion, egress and survival during infection  
Marilia Cascalho Evolving vaccines; DNA mutators and tumorigenesis; molecular and cellular mechanisms that control antibody affinity maturation in infection and transplantation, molecular and cellular mechanisms contributing to of immune fitness  
Grace Chen Understanding how Nod-like receptors and the gut microbiota affect susceptibility to colitis and colon cancer  
Kathy Collins Our goals are to better understand molecular mechanisms of viral immune evasion and to develop strategies to inhibit these processes.  
Jeff Curtis Immunology of the lungs  
Kate Eaton Dr. Eaton's research interests are in pathogenesis of enteric bacterial diseases. Current projects involve germ free mouse models and the pathogenesis of disease due to Shiga-toxin producing E. coli. Dr. Eaton is the director of the Germ Free mouse core.  
David Fox Research in Dr. Fox's laboratory is directed at defining and characterizing pathways of human T cell activation, and the role of these pathways in the pathogenesis of autoimmune disease.  
A. Oveta Fuller An innovative biology-based HIV/AIDS prevention intervention through faith leader networks Mechanisms of entry and membrane fusion of human viral pathogens   
Oliver He Both bioinformatics research (e.g., ontology, literature mining, Bayesian network, and vaccine informatics) and wet-lab research (host-pathogen interactions and vaccine R&D).   
Yossi Holoshitz Signal transduction in autoimmune diseases with a focus on the interface between the adaptive and innate immune systems  
Gary Huffnagle Pulmonary immunology; fungal pathogenesis and microflora-mediated modulation of immunity   
David Irani We study nervous system-immune system interactions in a mouse model of lethal alphavirus encephalomyelitis and in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis.  
Steven L. Kunkel, PhD Regulation of cytokine gene expression; macrophage pathobiology.   
Yu Leo Lei Our laboratory is interested in the molecular mechanisms regulating cancer cell-immune cell interaction.   
Carey Lumeng My lab focuses on the causes of obesity-induced inflammation and the biology of inflammatory cells in adipose tissue   
Steve Lundy Induction of immune tolerance using killer/regulatory B cells.  
Peter Mancuso Research in the Mancuso lab currently includes the following projects: 1) Impact of obesity on in innate immunity and host defense against bacterial pneumonia; 2) Effects of drugs that increase the life span on innate immunity in aged mice; 3) We are also exploring the role of the adipokines (hormones produced by fat cells) in chronic disease in the Study of Women Across the Nation. 4)   
David Markovitz Our laboratory studies the interaction between human cellular factors and retroviruses, and their role in oncogenesis and immuity.  
Harry Mobley My laboratory is interested in the molecular mechanisms of bacterial pathogenesis. We are studying virulence mechanisms of uropathogenic Escherichia coli and Proteus mirabilis that cause urinary tract infection. We are developing vaccines that will protect against these infections.
