van Oers Lab

Children with in-born errors of immunity are prone to life-threatening viral, bacterial, and fungal infections. We study the causes of their immune system problems, combining clinical insights and mouse models genocopying the various mutations. This work includes a profiling of immune responses to infections (e.g., COVID-19) in normal healthy individuals along with different patient populations (e.g. 22q11.2 deletion syndrome).

Vega Lab

Dr. Vega and co-workers have discovered three other causes of high LDL. First, she found that some patients have abnormal LDL particles that cannot be removed from circulation because the abnormal LDL does not recognize the receptors.

Vernino Lab

The Vernino Lab focuses on the mechanisms of autoimmune disorders of the nervous system, especially those associated with neurological autoantibodies. We use a variety of techniques including histology, and immunology.  This research is complemented by clinical therapeutic trials studying novel treatments for autoimmune encephalitis and autonomic disorders.

Vinogradov Lab

The main focus of the Vinogradov Lab is developing MRI methods that are based on the intrinsic biochemical processes and physical properties of the tissue: chemical exchange rearrangements, molecular networks, and relaxation.
