Research Summary

Interested in cell locomotion, intercellular junctional biology, and cell monolayer barrier function, particularly with regard to inflammation.

Past or Present Projects Available:

Immune cell adhesion in pregnant uterus; endothelial cell and leukocyte behavior during inflammation; use molecular and cell biology techniques and live cell imaging to understand adhesion molecules and cytoskeletal dynamics during leukocyte homing and diapedesis, and in endothelial barrier regulation; Endothelial cell and leukocyte behavior during inflammation; use molecular and cell biology techniques and live cell imaging to understand adhesion molecules and cytoskeletal dynamics during leukocyte homing and diapedesis, and in endothelial barrier regulation; host-pathogen interactions between invasive Candida (yeast), endothelial cells and leukocytes; Endothelial Cell Migration Rate: Signaling and Cytoskeletal Mechanisms
