Dr. Guyre's principal research interests to date have been: (i) Cancer immunotherapy; (ii) understanding the regulation and function of IgG Fc receptors on phagocytes, and (iii) how hormones and cytokines regulate the functional activity of white blood cells including monocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells, and neutrophils. The Guyre lab team is currently focused on finding biomarkers for the neuroimmune related disease, myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) and the tick-induced mammalian meat allergy Alpha Gal Syndrome. Vastly underdiagnosed, IgE anti-alpha gal (a sugar found on all mammals except humans) can induce life threatening anaphylaxis to not only meals of beef and pork, but to medications contained in gelatin capsules.
Advanced Biomedical Sciences
After Dr. Guyre received his Ph.D from the University of New Hampshire in 1978, he trained as a postodoctoral research associate with Allan Munck in the DMS Department of Physiology. He joined the Physiology faculty in 1980, and has been a Professor of Physiology and of Microbiology/Immunology since 1991.
