Research Interests

Using a novel murine of of allergic airways disease I am currently studying 1) the role of the early neonatal environment on the development of allergic diseases, 2) the genotype phenotype relationships in allergy and 3) the effects of STAT 6 inhibitory peptides in prevention and treatment of allergic diseases.
