Our Lab

The Garden & Luo Immune Regulation Laboratory has expertise in two key areas: (1) the biology of regulatory cells of lymphoid and myeloid origin in the context of the cancer microenvironment and autoimmune disease, particularly myasthenia gravis, immune-mediated hemolytic anemia, and other immune-mediated diseases; and (2) the development of antigen-specific vaccinal immunotherapies for antibody-mediated autoimmune diseases, including myasthenia gravis and anti-N-methyl D-aspartate receptor encephalitis.
