The main focus of my laboratory is to understand events leading to programmed cell death (apoptosis) in developing T-cells in the thymus. We are currently using several genetically modified mice to determine the role of Beclin 1, a gene implicated in autophagy and apoptosis, in intrathymic T-cell development. My long term goal is to develop a mouse model in which the Beclin 1 gene will be inactivated in lymphoid cells. This will provide an excellent system to study different aspects of T-cell biology in which Beclin 1 could play an important role.
