I am the Kay Davis Professor of Biomedical Engineering & Microbiology-Immunology within the Northwestern University’s McCormick School of Engineering and Feinberg School of Medicine. My research objectives are to investigate the basic immunological processes contributing to diverse inflammation-driven pathologies and to develop targeted therapeutic approaches using engineering- and materials-based strategies. More specifically, I aim to achieve controlled elicitation or suppression of the immune system via the rational design of biomimetic delivery systems that target key inflammatory cell populations. These efforts are focused on addressing fundamental problems in the areas of infectious disease, transplant tolerance, heart disease, glaucoma, and cancer immunosuppression.
