Focus of Work


I am interested in better understanding the reason why lung rejection occurs after lung transplantation in certain patients. This is most likely secondary to several factors including the type of immunosuppression, genetic factors and infectious causes on the immune system. I am currently studying the effect of the lung microbiota on the immune system in lung transplant recipients.
