    Collapse Overview
    The goal of my research is to identify factors that influence the initiation of effective immune responses to HBV in the liver. Currently, my focus is on understanding the role of the liver as a site of immune priming to hepatotropic pathogens and the influence of commensal bacteria on the liver priming environment. I am also very interested visualizing of immune structures in the liver by immunofluorescent staining of liver tissue.
