Our lab's focus is on the transcriptional control of CD4+ T cell development and function. We are specifically interested in the transcriptomic programs controlling the emergence of CD4+ lineage in the thymus and in the transcriptional control of CD4+ T cell responses to pathogens and tumors.

Areas of Expertise

1) T lymphocyte 2) T cell development 3) T cell effector differentiation 4) transcription 5) chromatin
