Overview

IVIg protects target cells by up-regulating endogenous caspase and calpain inhibitors. Basic biology of the skin and mechanisms of autoimmune blistering disease.

Research Interests

Dr. Grando's research focuses on the basic biology of the skin and mechanisms of autoimmune blistering disease. Previously, Dr. Grando utilized pemphigus patients' IgGs as a probe to identify the pathophysiologically relevant target antigens in the autoimmune blistering disease pemphigus.
