My lab researches problems of immunosuppression - either too much or not enough. We collaborate with exercise physiologists and chemists in studying the effects of a variety of complementary and integrative health treatments on the immune system. We are also seeking to characterize the signal transduction mechanisms underlying select immunosuppressive agents.
I regularly teach A&P for allied health undergraduates, advanced medical physiology for graduate students, and occasional offerings of an upper-level undergraduate neurobiology course. Past experience includes setting up gross anatomy labs in a small liberal arts environment, curriculum development/administration at the course and program levels for undergraduate biology, and teaching immunology, comparative anatomy, and biochemistry.
