My research focus is to understand the role of intrauterine innate immune macrophages in the response to Group B Streptococcal infection. We are working to tease apart the specific requirements for both maternal- and fetal-derived macrophages during pregnancy. Additionally, we are working to understand how fetal inflammation is initiated in response to intrauterine infection.
