This physician is not currently rated. Why?

Why is this doctor not rated?


To ensure the accuracy of our patient satisfaction scores, we require that providers who see patients receive a minimum number of completed patient-submitted surveys before their reviews are listed on their profiles. Star ratings on this site are collected on a rolling basis from the previous 12 months.
Additionally, some of the physicians listed on our site do not see patients directly, and therefore, do not receive evaluation and ratings from patients.

Research Interests

Thioester-containing proteins (TEPs) are a large family of secreted proteins, including vertebrate complement factors and α2-macroglobulins, that perform multiple key roles in the innate immune response. Furthermore, insect TEPs, or iTEPs, are known factors that restrict the transmission of infectious diseases such as malaria and dengue by their insect vectors. My laboratory combines biochemical, biophysical and structural techniques to investigate the molecular function of TEPs and their interaction partners. Our goal is to better understand and eventually control to the spread of vector-borne diseases, and to discover new functions of TEPs in immunity and development with potential impact on inflammatory and neuromuscular diseases.
