Projects for Thesis Supervision:

1. Evaluation of the role of the adaptor molecule EAT-2 in macrophages and dendritic cells, using an EAT-2-deficient mouse generated in our laboratory.

2. Examination of the mechanism by which SAP, a small adaptor molecule mutated in X-linked lymphoproliferative disease in humans, regulates immune responses.

3. Characterization of the role and mechanism of action of SLAM family receptors in immune cells.
