Aldridge, Jerry

Assistant Professor
The interplay of pathogens and the host immune response:  the interface of tapeworm infections and the mouse immune system, using flow cytometry, cell-based functional assays and mouse genetic models to dissect out the key component of these responses and the immunomodulatory molecules released by parasites that alter the host immune system.
