Research interests

Her primary research interests include cedar pollen allergies and environmental estrogen effects on allergy and asthma. She identified, cloned, sequenced and IgE epitopes identified the major allergens of mountain cedar pollen, Jun a 1 and Jun a 3. Her group has crystallized Jun a 1 and modeled Jun a 3, and mapped IgE epitopes. She has been interested in the structure and function of allergens to modify allergic reactions.

She has expended her research on the effects of environmental estrogen on the development of allergy and allergic diseases. She has found effects of a panel of environmental estrogens on allergy and asthma using the culture cells and animal models. Genome wide analyses of CD4+T and CD8+T cells from the mouse model of asthma with bisphenol A (BPA) exposure are ongoing.
