Area of Expertise: Dr. Vella’s laboratory focuses on several aspects of T cell and inflammation biology. He aims is to uncover how T cells function so that we can guide and control behavior of these important immune cells. Dr. Vella believes that the outcome of this work will foster vaccine development, but also devise new ways to control unwanted immune responses. His approach is to understand how adjuvants and costimulatory pathways influence the function of T cells, and define how cytokine networks impact immune cell behavior.
