Dr. Oliver investigates the mechanisms governing T cell activation and protective immunity. Her goal is to define mechanisms that, when dysregulated, result in autoimmunity or allergic disorders like asthma.
Dr. Hartung is the interim director of CHOP's Sickle Cell Center and the director of innovation of the CuRED Frontier Program. His clinical focus is on bone marrow failure syndromes and sickle cell disease and his research focus is on entrepreneurial science and medical device development.
Dr. Bailis aims to understand how metabolism underlies immunology and disease, by controlling the biochemistry of cells and tissues. His lab does so using in vitro and in vivo CRISPR engineering of primary human and mouse immune cells, with the goal of developing diet and metabolite based therapies.
Dr. Olson aims to improve diagnostics and treatment of bone marrow failure (BMF) syndromes, and to improve clinical hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) outcomes. He conducts clinical trials of HSCT for non-malignant hematologic diseases. His laboratory explores both basic and translational research focused on genomics of BMF and the impact of BMF on hematopoietic niche function during HSCT.
Dr. Behrens' research focuses on the pathogenesis and treatment of cytokine storm syndromes, including the hemophagocytic syndromes Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) and Macrophage Activation Syndrome (MAS).
Jarod Zepp, PhD, is interested in studying how cells in the lung integrate external cues during organ development and tissue repair after injury. Specifically, he is focused on identifying mechanisms regulating fibroblast activation and differentiation.
Dr. Weitzman's research program aims to understand host responses to virus infection, and the cellular environment encountered and manipulated by viruses. He studies multiple viruses in an integrated experimental approach that combines biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics, and cell biology.
Dr. Zhou’s outstanding research interests include mitosis-coupled DNA methylation drift and inference of cell-type-specific epigenetic signals. He developed multiple computational tools for analyzing DNA methylation data and has actively contributed to cancer genomics data analysis.
