Barry is a sixth-year Graduate Program in Genetics and Genomics (GPGG) PhD candidate working in the Bonegio laboratory. During his third and fourth years he completed a two year “Immunology Training Program” (ITP) Pre-doctoral Fellowship. His academic interest is in 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). He is passionate about science in general, and he greatly enjoys teaching others. His long-term goal is to take the scientific knowledge, critical thinking abilities, and communication skills that he has acquired while working toward his PhD and translate them into a career in education.

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.
