The Goronzy Lab

We are looking to recruit healthy individuals between the ages of 25 and 85 for a variety of studies. You can contact us for more details.

Safeguarding the Human Immune System During Aging

The Goronzy lab is interested in understanding how a functional immune system is maintained with age, despite failing regenerative capacity and accumulating impacts by challenges from exogenous and latent infections. We study mechanisms, at the system as well as the single cell level, that contribute to declining immunity and to the higher frequency of some autoimmune diseases with age. We primarily work with human blood specimens or cell lines. Ultimately, we are trying to identify molecular pathways that can be targeted to improve immune function in advanced age.
