Research Interests

My research has focused on understanding the role of some important pro-inflammatory cytokines, such as IL-15, IL-18 and IL-12 family cytokines (IL-23, 27) in the disease process in order to find practical ways to regulate the function of those cytokines for disease treatment.


Selected Projects

  • IL-15, IL-18, IL-12/23/27 mediated T cell responses in periodontitis and rheumatoid arthritis
  • Regulation of IL-18 activity in infection and inflammation
  • Cytokine mediated bone resorption in inflammatory diseases
  • Novel cytokine in immune suppression
