My lab is interested in how immune-related membrane proteins are trafficked to the cell surface. We are particularly focussed on how the lipid composition of membranes might modify the abundance and activity of these cell surface proteins. We are also interested in how lipid antigens are loaded onto CD1 before being presented on the cell surface.
