Research Lab of Elizabeth Bonney, M.D.


Area of interest: regulation of the immune response in pregnancy.

Dr. Bonney’s interests grow out of the age-old question: Why isn’t the fetus rejected by the maternal immune system? She uses newly developing mouse models to investigate pregnancy‚s influence on T cell regulation and immunologic memory. In addition, she is broadly interested in the developmental role(s) played by both pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines in normal pregnancy. Dr. Bonney's clinical research efforts have focused on aspects of prevention and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases in women.
