Research Contents

T cells are a vital component of the adaptive immune system. T cell activation is tightly regulated to ensure T cells provide an appropriate response to a broad array of antigens, including infectious agents that the host might encounter and tumor antigens inside of tumor, as well as self-antigens within the body. Impaired signal transduction in T cells could leads into immune deficiency, autoimmune diseases or defective cancer immune surveillance. Our lab aims to use a multidisciplinary approach to achieve a better understanding of T cell signaling pathways, which would be beneficial for the development of therapeutic strategies for immune disorders and cancer immunotherapy.
