Dr. Braun's research program is directed at the intersection of gene therapy, hematopoietic stem cells and the response of the immune system. His laboratory studies the therapeutic potential of gene therapy in the treatment of AIDS, lysosomal storage diseases, and the use of hematopoietic stem cells. Topics include tissue-specific expression of therapeutic genes and immunomodulatory effects of gene expression. This intersection has clinical relevance for multiple diseases and therapeutic modalities including gene therapy strategies, transplantation, immunotherapy and vaccine development.
