Research Summary

My research interests are clinically oriented and initially were focused on Lyme disease. I have actively participated in the Yale University Lyme Disease Clinic since 1992. I have been involved in several clinical studies including evaluating the safety and efficacy of a Lyme vaccine, and the evaluation of persistent symptoms following treatment for well documented Lyme disease. Recently, I have focused on translational projects involving patients with inflammatory diseases including systemic lupus, Sjogren's, and rheumatoid arthritis.
