My research centers on immunogenetic aspects of immune response with emphasis on the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) HLA class I and II genes.
Transgenic mice expressing human MHC genes are used in structure/function analysis, disease correlation, and thymic regulation of T-cell development.
Major ongoing studies on HLA linked disease models are:
Specific Research Topics
Expression and function of major histocompatibility genes. The broad interests of my lab are the studies on the regulation, expression, structure, and function of human major histocompatibility complex (HLA) class I and class II genes. During the past two years, we have focused on the following studies:
