Farrar Lab

Understanding the signals that regulate immune function.

The Farrar Lab seeks to understand how the immune system sends and receives information that guides its response to infection. We study a variety of external signaling systems ranging from classical cytokines to neurotransmitters. Our goal is to understand how these complex signals integrate to direct immune cell responses to pathogenic organisms.
