The MPS research lab focuses on finding treatments for the brain in the mucopolysaccharidoses. The mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are a group of rare genetic diseases. Current projects include intrathecal enzyme replacement therapy for mucopolysaccharidosis type I, immune tolerance to enzyme replacement, and developing enzyme replacement therapy for mucopolysaccharidosis type III.

Research interests include understanding the mechanisms of immunity and disease pathogenesis
associated with respiratory virus infection, and using this information to develop therapeutic protocols
and vaccines that will confer long-term protective immunity.
