Immunology Research

The Division of Immunology has a long track record of cutting edge research in allergic and immunological mechanisms and is recognized world-wide for work on IgE regulation, Current areas of basic research include:

  • Pathogenesis of atopic dermatitis
  • Wiskott Aldrich Syndrome protein (WASP) and associated molecules
  • Signal transduction by the T cell receptor, the role of SLP-76
  • Regulation of IgE production
  • Roles of IgE in allergic pathogenesis and parasite immunity
  • TRAF functions in TNF receptor family signaling


Ongoing clinical projects include:

  • The evaluation of immunomodulators in asthma and atopic dermatitis.
  • A study of the efficacy of purified C1 esterase inhibitor in hereditary angioneurotic edema.
  • The evaluation of intravenous gammaglobulin treatment of patients with antibody deficiency disorders.
  • Studies of the use of anti_IgE in the treatment of asthma and atopic dermatitis.


Featured researchers in the Division of Immunology hold faculty appointments at Harvard Medical School.
