Research on multiple sclerosis and influenza vaccine

My lab made significant contributions to the fields of vaccine development and cancer research, and to the study of parasitic diseases. I co-developed Copaxone®, a multiple sclerosis (MS) drug currently marketed worldwide. I continue to focus on the understanding of the mechanism by which Copaxone is exerting its beneficial effect. I am also developing a synthetic vaccine to provide broad range immunity against infection with influenza viruses.
