Dr. Locksley is the Sandler Distinguished Professor for Asthma Research and an Investigator in the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in the Department of Medicine and Division of Infectious Diseases at the University of California, San Francisco. An immunologist with long-standing interests in cytokine regulation during immunity and inflammation, he pioneered the use of cytokine reporter mice to enable the study of immunity in vivo. His laboratory has made fundamental contributions to immunity and inflammation, most recently in participating in the discovery of Group 2 innate lymphoid cells, or ILC2s, and in uncovering the role of epithelial tuft cells in allergic immunity. He is currently the Director of the Sandler Asthma Basic Research Center at UCSF. (Lab website at UCSF:
