Research Interest

Astley, Susan
PhD

Epidemiology (Pediatrics)

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, Randomized Control Trials, Research Methodology

Bornfeldt, Karin E
PhD

Medicine, Division of Metabolism, Endocrinology and Nutrition
(Pathology)

Focuses on elucidating the cellular mechanisms leading to accelerated atherosclerosis in disease states associated with inflammation, such as diabetes and, recently, lupus

Buckner, Jane
MD

Benaroya Research Institute, Translational Research
(Medicine, Rheumatology)

Genetic and Immunologic causes of autoimmunity

Campbell, Dan
PhD

Benaroya Research Institute
(Immunology)

Focused on understanding the regulatory mechanisms that modulate immune responses during autoimmunity and infection.

Chaussabel, Damien
PhD

Benaroya Research Institute
(Immunology)

Systems Immunology represents the merger of systems biology, state-of-the-art human immunology and medical innovation. The goal is to use high throughput molecular profiling technologies to assess the status of the immune system and more specifically use these approaches for the early detection of disease, complications and response to therapy.
