Summary

My laboratory investigates the role of a novel inflammatory mediator known as CAP37. We focus on the significance of this protein in host defense against severe infections including infections of the eye and in various inflammatory mediated diseases such as atherosclerosis and Alzheimer's disease. We currently employ a combination of cellular, immunological, biochemical and molecular approaches at the in vitro and in vivo level to solve these questions. Our long-term goals are to design new and effective antibiotics and anti-inflammatory therapeutics.
