My research interests are in the use of mesenchymal stem cells for treating inflammatory and immune-mediated diseases. I am currently focused on reducing the immunogenicity of donor mesenchymal stem cells through manipulation of MHC expression to develop more efficient and efficacious regenerative therapies for horses. Additional interests include developing the horse as a large animal translational model for immunology research.
