Leukocyte Biology and Function

Investigators focus on the mechanisms by which phagocytes recognize and kill microorganisms. The roles of mast cells and eosinophils in allergic responses and infectious diseases are also being studied, as is the role of apoptosis. Another area of emphasis is the role and function of phagocytes in acute inflammation and tissue injury.
