Academic Title: Associate Professor, Pediatrics; Adjunct Professor, Pathology

Research Title: Principal Investigator, Seattle Children's Research Institute

"I am passionate to come to the lab because I love what I do. Every day in the lab presents itself with new challenges and an infinite number of questions for which we usually have few or no answers. As a consequence of this, there is always work to be done and progress that ought to be celebrated and shared with the rest of the scientific community. I strongly believe that this is what research is about, and I am lucky to enjoy doing it every day."

  • Adrian Piliponsky, PhD, is a principal investigator within the Center for Immunity and Immunotherapeutics at Seattle Childrens Research Institute, and an assistant professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Washington School of Medicine.

    Dr. Piliponsky received his bachelors degree in Pharmacy from the University of Buenos Aires in Argentina. His passion for research eventually led him to The Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel where Dr. Piliponsky received his PhD. Under the mentorship of Francesca Levi-Schaffer, PhD, Dr. Piliponsky studied interactions of mast cells and eosinophils which are considered major players of allergies. With a desire to broaden his understanding of mast cells in vivo using mice with deficiencies in mast cells to study a variety of allergy and inflammatory disorders. Dr. Piliponsky took a post-doctoral position at Stanford University with Stephen J. Galli, MD, one of the lead researchers in the mast cell field.

Overview

Research Description

Dr. Adrian Piliponsky's research interests include investigating the importance and functions of mast cells in inflammatory disorders, such as sepsis, allergies, asthma and Group B Streptococcus, and testing whether these cells can be manipulated to prevent or control these processes.
