In this Faculty Spotlight, Colin Conine, PhD, shares how receiving the Junior Faculty Award allows him to study how the microbiome and T cells regulate transgenerational epigenetic inheritance.

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. Cardinale's research is focused on understanding the mechanisms of gene expression and gene regulation in autoimmune diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease, type 1 diabetes, and systemic sclerosis. He uses data from large-scale genomic studies to identify disease-causing genetic variants and functionally explore the target genes of those variants.

Dr. Bassing's research program focuses on the genetic, epigenetic, and biochemical mechanisms by which mammals develop their immune systems while suppressing autoimmunity and genomic aberrations that cause leukemia or lymphoma.

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.
