Current Research: Work in our lab has focused on the immunobiology of Trypanosoma cruzi infection in mice. This infection, causing Chagas' disease in humans, results in chronic cardiomyopathy, likely of immune origin. Examination of immune mechanisms, and the parasite antigens which elicit them, has been the major activity in our lab. Interest in differentiating immune responses that are protective from those involved in disease pathology has led to examination of the parasite's intracellular reproductive cycle, in vitro, and the ability of immune cells to effect the progression of this cycle.
