Multiple sclerosis • T-cell biology • MS progression

Research Focus

My research focuses on multiple sclerosis and changes in T-cells that predict rates of disease progression. I am interested in developing biomarkers that distinguish between MS patients having rapid vs. slow disease progression, in particular progression to secondary progressive MS which is the main determinant of long-term prognosis in MS patients.
