Our laboratory is interested in "Type 2 immunity" in health and disease. Type 2 immunity occurs during allergic diseases or infection with helminth parasites. Nonetheless, emerging data highlight new roles for Type 2 immune responses in metabolism, tissue regeneration, and cancer. We aim to define the roles of type 2 immune responses in chronic inflammation and the tumor microenvironment and to translate these findings into novel immunotherapies.
