Freedman Lab

Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Scholars in the lab are working on 3 areas of research: immune cell signaling,  immune dysfunction and protein regulation.

Immune cell signaling, particularly the earliest signaling events that occur at the membrane, starting with receptor ligation and the activation of the membrane-proximal protein tyrosine kinases (i.e. Src, Lyn, Fyn, Hck, Fgr, Syk).
