My research is focused around the idea of anergy in CD4+ T cells. Anergy is a functional unresponsiveness that results from incomplete or altered activation signals. My goals are to find the peptides that are driving CD4+ T cells to become anergic, and characterize their role in infection and autoimmunity. List of Publications
