    Studies in our lab are aimed at defining mechanisms in human immunity and disease. We are particularly interested the hypothesis that diversity in antibody-based signaling that arises from diversity in IgG antibodies and their receptors, is a central driver of heterogeneity in human immune functioning and susceptibility to infectious diseases. We are studying how the Fc domain repertoire of an individual impacts the quality of effector cell responses that can be recruited during immune activation and how selectivity of effector responses contributes to immunity and disease.
