Research

The Wood group’s research focuses on transplantation, particularly immune regulation and tolerance induction at the molecular and cellular level. They are investigating novel methods of inducing immunological tolerance to tissue and organ transplants, which will eliminate unwanted side effects of non-specific immunosuppressive drug therapy. In addition, the lab is identifying new sources of tissues and cells for transplantation.
