Vaccines are a critical element for preventative health, but modern vaccines often fall short of ideal. Robust vaccines for HIV, malaria, or even the common cold have been elusive to date.

The goal of the research is to probe the immune response to vaccines by focusing on high-resolution study of key cell types involved in making a robust response, and to understand how the vaccine response is affected by aging, inflammation, and immuno-modulatory therapies. Broadly, we seek to understand, and control, antibody responses.
