Brian Fife, PhD
Brian Fife, PhD, is an associate professor of Medicine in the Division of Rheumatic and Autoimmune Diseases. His research is focused on understanding the fundamental mechanisms that regulate T lymphocytes during autoimmune disease. Recently, Dr. Fife and his colleagues have generated a powerful treatment protocol to selectively target autoreactive cells. Using this type of approach allows them to re-educate the immune system to selectively silence destructive immune responses. Thus in effect, restore a state of self-tolerance and prevent further tissue destruction. Fife is a member of the Masonic Cancer Center’s Immunology Research Program.
