Interferons are a class of cytokines that are important in viral and bacterial innate immunity. Interestingly, aberrant regulation of interferons have also been associated with autoimmune disorders such as systemic lupus erythematous and multiple sclerosis. My work is aimed at elucidating signaling responsible for interferon production in myeloid-derived cell-types.
