Research Interests

The complexity of the human immune system is beautiful and awe-inspiring. Unfortunately, this complexity represents the most important barrier to successful organ transplantation. My research focuses on cutting-edge technology that detects antibodies produced by the immune system that damage the transplanted organ, a process that is ultimately the most common reason for kidney transplants to fail over time.
