Type 2 immunity, helminths and macrophage biology

My laboratory investigates host parasite dynamics during helminth infection with a specific interest in macrophage biology. Using models of injury and helminth infection, we are investigating the role of type 2 cytokines in the relationship, both proximal and evolutionary, between immunity to metazoan parasites, inflammation control and tissue repair.

Keywords: Macrophage / type 2 immunity / tissue repair / helminths / inflammation
