Research Summary

I currently research cells of the adaptive immune system, which have innate-like functional qualities under various inflammatory conditions. These cells influence the early immune response and shape the subsequent adaptive response, highlighting their role in infection and vaccination outcomes. Concurrently, I am testing the role of the immune system in both successful and complicated pregnancies.
