We are studying cellular immune responses to transfused blood products with the goal of developing strategies to prevent immune-mediated transfusion reactions. Current research focus is on characterizing immunoregulatory networks that result in development of antibodies (alloimmunization) against transfused cells in transfusion-dependent patients with sickle cell anemia (SCA) and thalassemia.
We are characterizing the cellular and molecular pathways resulting in platelet autoimmunity in patients with immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) with the goal of developing new and improved treatments. Current research focus is on identifying immunological signatures of ITP drug response.
