The research team led by Louise C. Showe, Ph.D., is using functional genomics approaches to understand a number of diseases and conditions in which changes in the activity of multiple genes are involved. Her primary interests have focused on lung cancer and cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL)  Additional ongoing collaborative studies include multiple sclerosis, and HIV with a common theme being how the disease affects, and is effected by the immune system. The ultimate aims are to understand disease development and progression as a function of interactions with the immune system.
