CHOP and Penn researchers find connection between mitochondrial function and mental illness in patients with a rare genetic disorder.

The Sullivan Lab has a broad interest in immune dysfunction. This can underlie susceptibility to infections and autoimmunity and inflammation. The investigators in the lab use cutting-edge approaches to investigate cause in individual patients and to look at population-wide causes of disease.

Dr. Sullivan's research focuses on new and rare immunodeficiencies. She has a long-standing interest in one of the most common of the primary immunodeficiencies – chromosome 22q11.2 deletion syndrome. She also investigates common variable immunodeficiency, as well as the genetics and epigenetics of systemic lupus erythematosus.
