My current research focuses on determining the effects of unique Maori and Pacific gene variants on immune function. By understanding the immunological effects of these gene variants, we hope to better understand variations in immune response of Maori and Pacific peoples and how these variations may lead to or protect one from various diseases such metabolic related conditions (Type II diabetes), auto-immunity, cancer, and infectious diseases.
