"The Baird/Holowka laboratory employs a broad range of biochemical, biophysical, and immunological methods to investigate the structure and molecular mechanisms of cell surface receptors in the immune response. Biophysical and biochemical studies are carried out in conjunction with measurements of cellular activities so as to determine what features are critical for the initiation and regulation of signal transduction. As described below, current studies focus mainly on three receptor systems that operate in immunological and other inflammatory responses. The goal of these integrated studies is to understand complex biological systems on a molecular level."
