Research Emphasis/Publications: Research was focused on a functional genomics project examining the role of an autoimmunity-associated gene in host-pathogen interactions. Her work demonstrated that the human disease “risk” gene PTPN22 functions as a positive regulator of TLR signaling and TLR-induced type 1 interferon-dependent immunity, including host antiviral response and suppression of inflammation in arthritis and colitis.
