Clinical Interest for Patients

My many clinical interests include diagnosis and treatment of primary immunodeficiency, autoimmune and chronic inflammatory disorders.


Care Philosophy

I strive to provide the best care for my patients. I believe in treating patients and their families, taking into account every aspect of the patient's body and health, empowering them with knowledge regarding their disease. In both the clinical and research environments, I consider myself a “hands on” teacher. History and physical exam skills are best exemplified at the patient’s bedside, and it is there that I prefer to teach clinical medicine to students, residents and fellows. Clues obtained from the history and physical exam lead to the formation of possible hypothesis that explain the current disease process (differential diagnosis), and the formulation of tests needed to test this hypothesis (laboratory and/or imaging evaluation). Similarly, for graduate students, I find that working side-by-side at the bench is the best way to obtain clues from failed experiments, to hypothesize the conceptual or technical errors, and design modifications to the experiment to best troubleshoot the issues at hand.

Research Interests for Patients

My research interests are primarily focused on investigating the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying innate immune dysregulation in inflammatory disorders. My research program at UCD combines (i) multi-parameter technologies such as mass cytometry, and (ii) basic immunology molecular and biochemical methods, which enable mechanistic follow up studies to initial findings from “systems biology” approaches. This combination of “systems approach” and focused mechanistic studies allow characterization of mechanisms that govern the human immune perturbations in inflammatory disease, at the level of the single-cell and in the context of the entire immune system. The ultimate goal of my research is to identify immune parameters that predict and determine disease flare/relapse and prognosis in individual patients, and to devise immune-modulatory strategies that can decrease flare/relapse rate and prevent end-organ damage.
