Research Interests

Many years I worked in the field of immunology, especially in allergy and microbiology.  I studied immune cells function and activities ad focused then on the mechanisms of allergic responses. For more than a decade, I collaborated with Dr. D. Hoffman at ECU Med School and Research Groups of Dr. A. Scheynius and Dr. M. VanHage-Hamsten at the Karoliska Institute in Sweden. We identified several new allergens from different sources which will help to improve diagnosis and treatment.

I am now focused on teaching different biology courses here at East Carolina University.
