Research at Mass General
The Markmann Laboratory in the Center for Transplantation Sciences (CTS) at Massachusetts General Hospital examines the hypothesis that a small subset of B cells plays a beneficial or regulatory role in transplant tolerance.
The elderly are the fastest growing segment of the population, and soon the number of people older than 65 will outnumber the number of children under five. Our group is interested in the effect of age on transplant tolerance. Data suggest that with age comes a significant resistance to transplant tolerance, and we hypothesize that hormones play a role in this resistance. Our group is interested modulating the endocrine system to reverse this barrier to tolerance.
