I'm currently Director of the Human Immune Monitoring Center at Stanford University, and I do part-time consulting in flow cytometry. My research has focused on cellular immune responses to pathogens, and the correlation of those responses with protection from clinical disease. Most of my work and collaborations involve multicolor flow cytometry for immune monitoring of diseases like cytomegalovirus (CMV), HIV, and cancer. I'm interested in determining immune correlates of protection for such diseases, where cellular immunity is important. This in turn would enable better vaccine development and monitoring of individuals undergoing immunotherapy.
