The primary focus of my laboratory is on the immune systems of insects, with emphasis on hemolymph (blood) clotting in fruit fly maggots. We are also exploring the role of nuclear lamins on immunity, gene expression, and aging. Joining the LFHCfS seems to fit with the time-honored tradition of participating in one’s work.
