Welcome to the Art Weiss Laboratory

Our Research Interest

Our primary research interest is in Immunology, with secondary interest in Cancer Biology & Cell Signaling as well as Signal Transduction in lymphocytes.

The response of lymphocytes to antigen which initiates an antigen specific immune response also represents a unique opportunity to study how complex molecular interactions between cells can lead to developmental decisions, cell differentiation and proliferation. We are interested in understanding how receptors involved in antigen recognition initiate signal transduction events that regulate cell responses in the immune system.
