Faculty and trainees in our program study all aspects of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases in animal models and in human cells, including the mechanisms leading to altered immune system activation and regulation, the impact of these alterations on organ function, the identification and validation of potential therapeutic targets, and the design of novel therapeutic strategies. The prototypic diseases investigated by our teams include asthma and other inflammatory lung diseases, type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and other joint diseases, scleroderma, septicemia, inflammation-induced thrombosis, inflammatory bowel diseases, and many others.
This work is enhanced by access to resources of the Biology of Inflammation Center, the Center for Translational Research on Inflammatory Diseases, cutting-edge Advanced Technology Cores, and collaborations with clinicians within Baylor College of Medicine and the Texas Medical Center.
