 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
Barry is a fourth-year GPGG PhD candidate and a second year "Immunology Training Program" (ITP) pre-doctoral student, working in the Bonegio laboratory. His long-term interest is in performing translational research that focuses on the genetic causes of autoimmune diseases, with an ultimate goal of working towards better treatments and/or cures for autoimmune disorders such as Lupus and Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS).

The Bonegio lab is investigating potential genetic causes and therapies for Lupus - particularly in the context of Lupus Nephritis. Barry is currently examining the possible contributions of a suspect gene to Lupus pathogenesis. The goal of this research is to discover and define the genetic differences, transcriptional changes, and signaling pathway variations that favor or lead to the development of Lupus – so that the lab can then begin to search for ways to target them therapeutically.
