Dr. Michael Croft and his team focus on a number of protein molecules that are members of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and tumor necrosis factor receptor (TNFR) family, a group of proteins believed to play important roles in the ability of the immune system to guard the body against harmful microorganisms. The TNFR molecules studied by Dr. Croft and his laboratory are expressed on T lymphocytes and other cells of the immune system and emerging evidence is suggesting they are crucial for the effective function of these cells in many types of immune response.
