    To examine molecular mechanisms underlying immune-cell development and effector functions and to assess their contributions to immune homeostasis and pathologies.

    Focus Area #1: To assess the contributions of RNA binding proteins, including RNA-helicases and RNA editing enzymes, to host immune homeostasis and autoimmune pathologies.

    Focus Area #2: To assess the identify and characterize contributions of chromatin associated non-coding RNAs to host immune homeostasis and autoimmune pathologies.

    Focus Area #3: To uncover the tissue-specific post-transcriptional and post-translational mechanisms that orchestrate local immune responses in models of mucosal inflammation, tumorigenesis, and autoimmunity.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
