The major research axes of our group are:

- T cell homeostasis, differentiation and metabolism in the context of genetic/acquired immunodeficiencies and cancer immunotherapy

-Modulating T cell differentiation by stem cell and gene therapies targeting the thymus

-Role of the GLUT1 glucose transporter in hematopoietic stem cell differentiation, activation and retroviral infection

-Erythrocyte GLUT1 expression: Evolutionary link to defective vitamin C synthesis

-Role of conditioning regimens in shaping the homeostasis of adoptively transferred T cells: Enhancing anti-tumor immunotherapy

-Normal and pathological human lymphopoeisis: Roles of the related ZAP-70 and Syk protein tyrosine kinases

-Studies of human immunodeficiencies


Keywords: Hematopoiesis, T cells, gene and cell therapies, metabolism, immunomodulation
