Our overarching goal is to identify mechanisms by which autoantigen-specific B lymphocytes breach immune tolerance barriers to drive autoimmune disease. We apply cutting-edge hybridoma and single-cell RNAseq/CITEseq/BCRseq technology to study this process in type 1 diabetes, myositis, and immune checkpoint inhibitor-induced autoimmunity.
