Daniel Kaplan, MD/PhD
Neuroimmunology of the Skin: Regulation of Cutaneous Immunity by the Nervous System
Nociceptive Nerves and Defense Against Cutaneous Candida Infection
Dr. Kaplan did his Dermatology training and research fellowship at Yale School of Medicine and is currently a Professor of Dermatology and Immunology at the University of Pittsburgh. His lab focuses on intercellular communication between skin-resident immune cells (e.g. dendritic cells, resident memory T cells) and non-immune cell types such as keratinocytes and cutaneous afferent nerves. The goal is to better understand mechanisms of counter regulation between these cell types in health and disease.
