Lab of Immunopharmacology & Immunotoxicology

 



The research of this laboratory is directed toward elucidating the immunological impacts and their underlying mechanisms for the effects of nanomaterials and immunoactive herbal constituents, including cannabidiol, areca nut-derived procyanidins, and the major yam-derived sapogenin diosgenin.
