An effective immune response requires recruitment of the right cells to the right place at the right time.  Our lab studies how lymphocyte trafficking is regulated.  We are particularly interested in three questions: (1) What determines how long a lymphocyte stays in a given location?  (2) How are the gradients that direct immune cell migration established?  (3) How do the trafficking requirements of normal and leukemic T cells differ, and can these differences be targeted therapeutically?
