Dr. Stefanski's Research

Dr. Stefanski's research is focused on expediting immune reconstitution after transplant. T lymphocytes are critical for effective responses to viruses and fungal infections; after undergoing bone marrow transplantation there are essentially no functional T cells until up to a year after transplant. In her laboratory, she is currently working on T cell reconstitution in order to decrease morbidity and mortality.
