Dr. Arlene Sharpe's current research interest is to study functions of T cell costimulatory pathways and their immunoregulatory roles in controlling the balance between T cell activation and tolerance. Costimulation is of therapeutic interest because manipulation of T cell costimulatory pathways may provide a means either to enhance immune responses (to promote anti-microbial or tumor immunity) or terminate immune responses (to control autoimmune diseases or achieve tolerance for tissue transplantation).
