Welcome to the lab of Dr. James McLachlan! 


Research Interests

Our laboratory focuses on mechanisms that regulate the adaptive immune response. Our studies use a variety of immunological challenges, including vaccination and infection, to better understand how the immune system responds to confrontation. We use mouse models and sophisticated tools to locate and assess immune cells in variety of tissues of the body where those cells are most needed. In addressing questions within the framework of how this adaptive immunity develops, we seek to use the knowledge gained to create more effective treatments for a variety of infections.
