    Research Interest:
    Induction of tolerance to prevent and treat autoimmune diseases such as thyroiditis and type- diabetes. We carryout basic cellular immunology work using animal models for the above diseases. We use protein chemistry, immunological techniques,flow cytometry, animal experimentation, immunohistochemistry, etc.
    Second project involves understanding the role of a novel human protein called IG in cell proliferation and death. In this project, we use a number of ell biologytechniques including cell cycle analusis, apoptosis assays,cell signalling studies, etc.

    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 20hrs

    Qualifications of a Student:
    Should have prior lab experience and should be interested in cell biology and immunology.

    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    Carryout tissue cilture work, animal (mostly mouse)handling, ELISA, SDS-PAGE, coning and restriction analysis.
