Summary of Work:     
 

I study molecular pathways involved in autoimmune/inflammatory diseases (AIDs) & utilize this knowledge to develop novel therapeutics. My work established aberrant toll-like receptor (TLR) expression & signaling in non-immune cells is a key mediator of AIDs; work that initiated a paradigm shift.
