Welcome to the Immunology laboratory at UC Davis!

In our laboratory at UC Davis we investigate the mechanisms leading to autoimmunity and food allergies.
In particular,

  • We study the pathogenesis of PRIMARY BILIARY CIRRHOSIS (PBC), an autoimmune disease of unknown origin that leads to progressive destruction of small bile ducts within the liver. To find out more click here.
  • We investigate the mechanisms leading to specific FOOD ALLERGIES. To find out more click here.

Ongoing calls for subjects

Twin Study. We are collecting information and blood samples from twin sets (identical and non-identical) where at least one subject has PBC. For more information e-mail megershwin@ucdavis.edu.
