Our laboratory is focused on understanding what goes wrong in white blood cells to cause allergic diseases such as asthma and food allergy, and autoimmune conditions such as lupus.

We are particularly interested in how changes to DNA, called epigenetic changes, switch white blood cells from protecting against infection to causing these diseases. In the long term we plan to use this knowledge to develop new treatments that ‘rewire’ white blood cells to prevent allergy and infection.
