Current Research Projects

  • Influence of IgE on mast cell homeostasis in the intestine.
  • IgE and mast cell effects on the induction of Th2 and Treg responses to ingested allergens.
  • Mast cell:ILC2 interactions in food allergy.
  • The function of food-specific IgG antibodies and signaling, via FcyRIIb, on inhibition both in immediate hypersensitivity reactions mediated by mast cells and basophils as well as on APC:T cell interactions in the intestine and the emerging Th2/Treg balance.
  • FcyRIIb signaling pathways in mast cells.
