Lymphocyte Response Signaling Mechanisms

Arthur Weiss is interested in how complex molecular interactions between cells can lead to developmental decisions, cell differentiation, and proliferation. More specifically, Weiss and his team want to understand how receptors involved in antigen recognition initiate signal transduction events that regulate immune cell responses. They want to know how these biochemical signals are controlled, in order to avoid or control autoimmunity and tissue damage. Understanding these signaling mechanisms may lead to the development of new therapies for disorders such as asthma, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, or transplant rejection.
