Research summary
I study inborn errors of immunity and am currently investigating a family with an inherited specific antibody deficiency (SAD), in which they have normal antibody levels but deficiencies in forming antigen-specific antibodies in response to infection or vaccination. The mechanism behind specific antibody deficiency is poorly understood, and we hope that studying patients with inherited forms of SAD will unveil the molecular pathways involved in the pathogenesis of SAD.
