General Research Interest

neuroendocrine regulation of inflammation and immunity 

Research Description

Research on understanding mind, brain and body interactions as they relate to modulation of peripheral physiological systems. This includes neuroendocrine regulation of gene expression in inflammatory and immune responses, and stress-induced susceptibility to infectious and malignant diseases.
