Research Interest

Our work on equine rhodococcal pneumonia has included pulmonary & mucosal immunity, cytotoxic T lymphocytes, DNA vaccines, and developing methods for studying cellular immune responses in horses. Another important aspect of this work is neonatal immunity, since a successful vaccine would probably need to be administered early in life. Currently we are looking at the role of non-traditional, MHC-unrestricted T lymphocytes and hypothesize that these immune cells recognize unique R. equi lipid antigens presented by CD1 molecules.
