My principal research interests involve investigating the pathogenesis and therapy of pruritus, atopic dermatitis and autoimmune skin diseases in dogs. Current projects on atopic dermatitis include modeling itch and allergic skin lesions experimentally to discover novel methods for their treatment and prevention. My research on autoimmune skin diseases involves the characterization of clinical signs, histopathology and immunological aspects of novel diseases in dogs and cats, especially variants of cutaneous lupus erythematosus.
