Welcome to the Pinchuk Research Lab

The Lab is part of the Basic Science Research Labs at Mississippi State University. Our research interests are centered on the role of infection and immunotoxicants in major developmental stages of monocyte differentiation into macrophages and dendritic cells. Currently, the major research project in the lab is the molecular mechanisms of professional Bovine Viral Diarrhea Viruses antigen presentation to specific T and B cells in bovine monocytes and dendritic cells by flow cytometry, Western blotting, real-time PCR and proteomics approaches.
