Dr. Maverakis Research Lab-Research Focus
Cutaneous T Cell Lymphoma- We are interested in identifying novel therapeutics that are able to selectively kill malignant T cells.
T cell competition- We are studying the role that T cell competition plays during the evolution of an immune response.
Longitudinal characterization of an autoreactive immune response- We have been able to clearly identify stably expanded T cells longitudinally in patients with chronic autoimmune disease. We are currently characterizing the surface phenotype of these cells.
