Understanding how biological sex impacts immunity

Work in Dr. McLachlan’s laboratory centers around how immunological encounters, such as vaccines and bacterial and viral infections, are sensed by the body. Using a combination of sophisticated immunological tools and animal models, his group is trying to understand how the immune system remembers these challenges and how biological sex might impact these responses. The overall goal of his group is to use the knowledge gained to develop better therapies against infections that continue to cause harm worldwide.
