Student research assistants and I study how the human immune system is influenced by two supplemental/alternative therapies: exercise and herbal medicine.  After collecting blood from human volunteers, we examine how the behaviors of white blood cells change in response to therapy.  Our research is multidisciplinary, involving elements from immunology, exercise physiology, and botany.
