Research

After completing my clinical training in pathology at Washington University in St. Louis 1998, I organized my own team to focus my research on understanding the role of the lymphoid microenvironment in cellular and humoral immune responses using various TNF superfamily members, such as the LIGHT/lymphotoxin pathway.

My team has published more than 50 papers relating to the mechanistic understanding autoimmunity and immunity against pathogens and tumor in top journals (e.g., Science, Nature, Nature Immunology, Nature Medicine, Cancer Cell, Immunity, Journal of Experimental Medicine, and Journal of Clinical Investigation).

With extensive training in clinical pathology and immunology, I have been able to direct clinical, translational, and preclinical studies in immunology—tumor immunology in particular—for more than 15 years.
