"Academic community is incredibly important for fostering progress and open discourse in science and, The JI is one of the 'Pillars" of our community as immunologists. Not only is The JI the place to learn about new discoveries in the field, but it also is an excellent forum for emerging themes relevant to the community. Immunology is an exciting field that is being propelled forward at breathtaking speed by technological advances and a collaborative spirit. As Deputy Editor for the special collections,  I am excited to oversee collections that will be an important (and cited!) resource for our community, and a gift for immunologists who wish to quickly immerse themselves in a particular topic."

Scientific expertise: diagnostic immunology (cellular and molecular immunology, including genomics) for primary and secondary immunodeficiencies, immune dysregulatory disorders and transplant immunology, related to immune competence and immune reconstitution in solid organ and hematopoietic transplantation.

“The AAI has been and is the premier immunology professional organization for basic and mechanistic immunology research, and its flagship journal, the Journal of Immunology (JI), has focused on various aspects of immunology research, including clinical and translational immunology. Journals published by professional societies provide a high level of scholarship, while providing an avenue for promoting research and translational studies within the society. The goal for the Clinical and Translational section of JI, for the next 5 years, will be to promote JI as a journal of choice for those investigators engaged in human immunology and clinical/translational immunology research, while ensuring that thorough and mechanistic clinical studies and reports are published to the benefit of all in the field.”
