Narrative Bio

I am accepting new MS and PhD students for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Research

Our group investigates immunological pathways dysregulated in preterm birth and adverse perinatal outcomes. Current work focuses on the role of innate and adaptive immune cells and the effect of the paternal-fetal antigen during pregnancy and preterm birth. This work is carried out by using animal models, human primary cell culture systems, in vitro functional assays, flow cytometry, confocal microscopy, RNAseq, qRT-PCR and immunoassays.
