Daniel J. Campbell, PhD
Dr. Campbell graduated with honors from the University of Michigan in 1993, and received his PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology from the University of California, Berkeley in 1998. Following a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University, Dr. Campbell joined the faculty of the Benaroya Research Institute as an Assistant Member in 2003. He is currently Director of the Center for Fundamental Immunology and a Member at BRI. He is also an Affiliate Professor in the Department of Immunology at the University of Washington School of Medicine.
Area of Research
Research in Dr. Campbell’s laboratory is focused on understanding the regulatory mechanisms that modulate immune responses during autoimmunity and infection. In particular, we are studying how a population of leukocytes called regulatory T cells functions to restrain immune responses, and how these cells can have beneficial effects in preventing autoimmunity, but also can promote chronic infection with pathogens such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
