Dr. Campbell graduated with honors from the University of Michigan in 1993, and received his PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology from the University of California, Berkeley in 1998. Following a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University, Dr. Campbell joined the faculty of the Benaroya Research Institute as an Assistant Member in 2003. He is currently Director of the Center for Fundamental Immunology and a Member at BRI.

Research in the Campbell lab focuses on how effector and regulatory T cell activity are coordinated to provide defense against pathogens, resolve iflammation, promote tissue repair, and provide lasting immune memory. This balance is perturbed in autoimmunity, and the Campbell Lab is also working to develop new ways of restoring tolerance and mitigating disease in individuals with autoimmune and inflammatory diseases.
