Research Interests

Our research interests span the fields of molecular, population, evolutionary, and disease genetics/epigenetics, using both human and animal model systems. The primary projects in the lab are currently focused on characterizing and cataloguing antibody genetic diversity among human populations and laboratory mouse strains, and understanding how genetic/epigenetic variation influences antibody function and the development of the immune response. Our ultimate aims are to explore how this information can be leveraged to inform our understanding of disease susceptibility and clinical health outcomes.
