The Cooper lab has two main areas of interest: mechanisms of NK cell activation and the genetic basis of pediatric immune dysregulation syndromes. Current NK cell projects include: 1) metabolic regulation of NK cell activation; 2) metabolic regulation of NK cell anti-viral responses; and 3) enhancing NK cell memory for immunotherapy. Current projects focused on immune dysregulation include: 1) an in vivo model of STAT3 GOF ; 2) the role of STAT3 in epithelial cell turnover; 3) novel genetic defects in pediatric immune dysregulation syndromes.
We are always looking for interested graduate students and post-doctoral fellows to join our research team. If you are interested in learning more about current projects and opportunities, please e-mail Megan (email@example.com).
