Altman Lab Main

Altman Lab

The Altman lab focuses on use of whole genome transcriptional profiling and multi-omics approaches, and leverages big-data computational biology to understand the molecular mechanisms underpinning severe asthma and other immunologic diseases.

Bettelli Lab Main

Bettelli Lab

The main focus of the Bettelli Lab is to identify the cell types of the immune system and mechanisms, which induce and regulate the development of autoimmunity.
View Lab
Buckner Lab Main

Buckner Lab

The Buckner Lab is focused on identifying the underlying mechanisms by which regulation of the adaptive immune response fails or is overcome in the setting of human autoimmunity. 
View Lab
Campbell Lab Main

Campbell Lab

The Campbell laboratory is interested in understanding the basis for T cell activation, function and tolerance.

Cerosaletti Research Project Main - Autoreactive T cells in type 1 diabetes

Cerosaletti Lab

Dr. Cerosaletti’s research is focused on the role of the adaptive immune system in the development and progression of immune mediated diseases and the response to treatment.

Greenbaum Lab Main Image

Greenbaum Lab

Our group focuses on prediction and prevention of type 1 diabetes (T1D) as well as discovery and validation of biomarkers of disease progression and response to therapy.
View Lab
Hamerman Lab Main

Hamerman Lab

The lab is interested in understanding how myeloid cells contribute to both productive and pathological immune responses during infection, inflammation, and autoimmune diseases.
View Lab
Harrison Lab Main

Harrison Lab

The Harrison Lab studies the mechanisms controlling host-microbe interactions at barrier tissues, primarily the skin and the gut with the goal to understand how these immune cells promote barrier tissue integrity and repair, and to understand how this goes awry during disease.
View Lab
James Lab Main

James Lab

The James lab is working to develop an increasingly in depth knowledge of autoreactive T cell responses by examining the characteristics of the epitope specific cells involved in autoimmune diseases through robust multi-parameter assays and also at the single cell level.
View Lab
Khor Lab Main

Khor Lab

The Khor lab is interested in understanding novel pathways that regulate tolerance and inflammation, with the goal of developing novel precision therapies. A major focus of the lab is understanding the mechanistic basis of immune dysregulation in people with Down syndrome.
View Lab
Kwok Research Project Main - DNA-barcoded HLA class II tetramers

Kwok Lab

The Kwok lab uses tetramers and other antigen specific T cell assays to examine autoreactive T cells in  autoimmune diseases in order to provide insights into disease mechanisms and identify strategies for disease intervention.

Lacy-Hulbert Res Proj Main - Forward Genetics

Lacy-Hulbert Lab

The Lacy-Hulbert lab works to understand how different aspects of the immune system cooperate to identify and combat potentially infectious organisms while preventing immune attack against innocuous microbes or the body’s own self.
View Lab
Linsley Lab Main

Linsley Lab

Our goal is to develop and use cutting edge systems biology approaches to elucidate molecular signatures of complex immune diseases, understand the mechanisms of disease, and identify the right therapy for the right patient.
View Lab
Long Lab Main

Long Lab

The Long Lab focuses on understanding mechanisms of tolerance, why they are lost in autoimmunity, and how tolerance can be augmented with therapy.
View Lab
Lord Lab Main

Lord Lab

The Lord lab is investigating how loss of “tolerance” happens in IBD, to learn how the immune system normally coexists peacefully in close proximity to gut contents.
View Lab
Mikacenic Lab Main

Mikacenic Lab

The Mikacenic lab is focused on understanding how lung immune cells contribute to inflammation, repair, and fibrosis.
View Lab
Morawski Lab Main (Action Shot)

Morawski Lab

The Morawski lab studies the adaptive immune response occurring during human inflammatory and autoimmune diseases of the skin and other barrier tissues.
View Lab
Ray Lab Main

Ray Lab

The Ray Lab is interested in better understanding how genetic variation tunes our immune system and how this can put individuals at risk for autoimmune diseases.
View Lab
Speake Research Project Main - TrialNet Pathway to Prevention

Speake Lab

The Speake group is interested in advancing clinical research – especially in type 1 diabetes, but also in the context of other immune-mediated diseases.
View Lab
Stefani Lab Main

Stefani Lab

The goal of our research is to better understand mechanisms of sensing and repair during diseases like cancer, infections, and neurodegenerative disorders.
View Lab
Ziegler Lab Main

Ziegler Lab

The Ziegler laboratory is investigating the role of the epithelial cytokines TSLP and IL-33 in regulating protective responses at mucosal barrier surfaces such as the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts.

Join us for BRI Immunology Symposium: New Horizons in Immunity and Disease

Benaroya Research Institute’s first annual Immunology Symposium: New Horizons in Immunity and Disease will be taking place on Wednesday, May 22, from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. at Town Hall Seattle, followed by a reception at BRI. We’re excited to bring together leading voices from the local and national immunology research community for a day of collaboration, learning, discussion and networking.

We hope that you’ll be able to join us.
