Stephen J. Galli, MD
The Mary Hewitt Loveless, M.D. Professor in the School of Medicine and Professor of Pathology and of Microbiology and Immunology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The goals of Dr. Galli's laboratory are to understand the regulation of mast cell and basophil development and function, and to develop and use genetic approaches to elucidate the roles of these cells in health and disease. We study both the roles of mast cells, basophils, and IgE in normal physiology and host defense, e.g., in responses to parasites and in enhancing resistance to venoms, and also their roles in pathology, e.g., anaphylaxis, food allergy, and asthma, both in mice and humans.
Jeffrey S. Glenn, MD PhD
Associate Professor of Medicine (Gastroenterology and Hepatology) and of Microbiology and Immunology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Glenn's primary interest is in molecular virology, with a strong emphasis on translating this knowledge into novel antiviral therapies. Other interests include exploitation of hepatic stem cells, engineered human liver tissues, and new biodefense antiviral strategies.
Harry B Greenberg
Director, Spectrum, Senior Associate Dean, Research, The Joseph D. Grant Professor in the School of Medicine and Professor of Microbiology and Immunology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Molecular mechanisms of pathogenesis; determinants of protective immunity; host range and tissue tropism in liver and GI tract pathogenic viruses and studies of vaccines in people.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Microbiology and Immunology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests How do sporozoites, the product of sexual reproduction of Toxoplasma, co-opt host cell functions to initiate an infection in a new intermediate host? [Sporozoites express a very different arsenal of secreted proteins many of which are expected to serve as "effectors" that alter host cell function in ways beneficial to the invading parasite.]
