Research Abstract

A major research interest is the study of mechanisms to enhance immunity against tumors using small molecules directed against an enzyme that controls the strength of the immune response.

Another area of interest is the study of how chronic lymphocytic leukemia develops at the earliest stages.

We are also interested in the immune mechanisms that cause fibrosis, in diseases such as IgG4-related disease and scleroderma
