Our group has done pioneering work in understanding the role of immune cells in infection, metabolic diseases and cancer. In particular, our laboratory has discovered key molecules and pathways that regulate the differentiation and function of immune cells such as regulatory T cells, CD8+ T cells and B cells in viral infection, cancer and type 2 diabetes.
