Cytokine Storm Syndrome (CSS) is a condition of severe, potentially fatal, inflammation. We use a combination of hypothesis-driven and discovery-based approaches, in vitro and in vivo, to determine host factors that regulate CSS from sterile and infectious causes. We focus on the role of autophagy, cell death, and immunometabolism in macrophages and interacting cells. We leverage mouse models and mouse genetics to define the physiological role of these factors and determine their mechanism of action.
