Mehrdad Matloubian, MD, PhD

Professor

I have a general interest in mechanisms of immune mediated diseases and approaches for a better understanding of the molecular bases of such processes. The goal is to provided therapeutic for treatment of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases through a better understanding of the involved pathways.
