Research themes are directed at understanding principles of immune-regulation, elucidation of effector and regulatory mechanisms of distinct immune cell (principally T cell, B cell, and myeloid cell) subsets in CNS inflammatory disease; immune reconstitution, neuroimmune interactions and mode of action of emerging therapies. He is past President of the Canadian Network of MS Clinics (CNMSC) and past member of the Board of Directors of the Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies (FOCIS) where he continues as a member of the Education Committee.
