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).
