Research and Clinical Interests

Developmental immunology of B cells, including their generation from stem cells in fetal liver and bone marrow; regulation of B-cell development by pre-BCR and BCR signaling; development of B-cell subsets, including B-1 B cells, with relevance to autoimmunity and leukemia. Most of this work uses the mouse as a model system, but recent studies include analysis of B cell receptors in chronic lymphocytic leukemia patient cells and a genetic screen in the zebrafish.
