Lab of Infection and Immunity

My lab investigates viral pathogenesis and immunity, which encompass all aspects of infection of animal hosts, including the sequence of events from entry to shedding, the clearance or persistence of the virus, the immune response of the host and the subsequent occurrence of disease. In recent years, emerging viral diseases pose serious threats to humans and animals, and they have incurred tremendous financial and societal costs for decades. We currently focus on the study of avian influenza virus and coronavirus, and use chickens and mice as our research models.
