We investigate how T cells traffic and respond to infections. In particular, we study the signals that regulate T cell migration and activation to ensure protective immunity while preventing autoimmunity and immunodeficiency disease.
Resident memory CD8+ T cells in regional lymph nodes mediate immunity to metastatic melanoma.
IL-6 enhances CD4 cell motility by sustaining mitochondrial Ca2+ through the noncanonical STAT3 pathway.
Dendritic cells maintain anti-tumor immunity by positioning CD8 skin-resident memory T cells.
Engineering a natural ligand-based CAR: directed evolution of the stress-receptor NKp30.
Diverse Roles of Akt in T cells.
Foxo1 Serine 209 Is a Critical Regulatory Site of CD8 T Cell Differentiation and Survival.
Control of B Cell Lymphoma by Gammaherpesvirus-Induced Memory CD8 T Cells.
AMPK Activation by Metformin Promotes Survival of Dormant ER+ Breast Cancer Cells.
Author Correction: Immune-checkpoint protein VISTA critically regulates the IL-23/IL-17 inflammatory axis.
