Dr. Ma focuses on immune engineering. He leverages genetic, chemistry, and engineering tools to dissect immune cell-cell and cell-tissue crosstalk and harness these crosstalk mechanisms to develop biomaterials, protein, and cell-based precision immunotherapies for cancer and autoimmune diseases.
Dr. Bailis aims to understand how metabolism underlies immunology and disease, by controlling the biochemistry of cells and tissues. His lab does so using in vitro and in vivo CRISPR engineering of primary human and mouse immune cells, with the goal of developing diet and metabolite based therapies.
Dr. Oliver investigates the mechanisms governing T cell activation and protective immunity. Her goal is to define mechanisms that, when dysregulated, result in autoimmunity or allergic disorders like asthma.
Dr. Sgourakis’ research focuses on understanding the intricate molecular mechanisms that determine the vast repertoire of peptide antigens displayed by the proteins of the Major Histocompatibility Complex for immune surveillance by T cells and Natural Killer cells.
Dr. Lindell’s research program is centered on the biology of critical illness in children with immune dysfunction. His current translational research is focused on pediatric septic shock and the development of multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) in critically-ill children.
Dr. Perate is an anesthesiologist with a specialty in Neuroanesthesia at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, an associate director with the CHOP Trauma Center, and an assistant professor of Clinical Anesthesiology and Critical Care. Dr. Perate's research focuses on sepsis and adaptive immunity.
Dr. Behrens' research focuses on the pathogenesis and treatment of cytokine storm syndromes, including the hemophagocytic syndromes Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) and Macrophage Activation Syndrome (MAS).
Dr. Samelson-Jones is a pediatric hematologist dedicated to improving the lives of children with bleeding and clotting disorders. His research focuses on gene therapy for hemophilia, the biochemical basis of coagulation, and the immune responses to hemophilia therapies.
