NIH Director’s Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series
Dr. Littman’s laboratory applies molecular and genetics tools to study how T lymphocytes develop and participate in inflammation and how HIV interacts with the host innate immune system. Dr. Littman isolated the genes for the CD4 and CD8 co-receptors and determined how their expression is regulated and their signaling influences selection of helper and cytotoxic cells. His group discovered that the nuclear receptor RORt regulates differentiation of Th17 cells and lymphoid tissue inducer cells and that it can be targeted for autoimmune disease therapy.

In the SEnSE lab, medical simulation and innovative technology are used to objectively assess clinical, hands-on performance. We are a multidisciplinary lab that includes people from a broad range of specialties. The team is comprised of individuals with backgrounds in engineering, medicine, kinesiology, biostatistics, and others working together towards improving medical education and the way clinical competency is assessed.
