Personal profile


In vitro type I hypersensitivity modelling using human progenitor cells derived effector cells (basophils and mast cells).

  • Using proprietary technologies of generating human progenitor cells derived basophils and mast cells in high-yield.
  • Passive basophil or mast cell activation tests.


Research interests

I am currently leading a collaborative study between the Respiratory and Allergy Centre and MCCIR, where I am investigating the role of basophils in allergic inflammation.
