My research program pertains to the importance of the IgE and cytokines receptors activation in the regulation of cellular properties and intracellular signaling pathways in granulocytes and structural cells. A second major area has been the delineation of the importance of intracellular signaling pathways in glucocrticoids mediated leukocyte survival and death.
