Moran Laboratory

The emphasis of the Moran laboratory is on immunity to infectious disease. Specific work includes investigation of viral-bacterial coinfection, a study of the effect of thymus maturation on memory response to virus, and investigations into the changes to immunity that occur during pregnancy.

In addition to research studies, there is a strong link to the Center for Therapeutic Antibody Development (CTAD). CTAD collaborates with many research groups at Mount Sinai to generate and test monoclonal antibodies with therapeutic or diagnostic value.  Currently mAb targeting cancers, infectious agents and immune regulators are in progress.
