Research Area:

Nutrient Sensing, mTORC1 Signaling, Metabolism, T Cell Differentiation

We are studying the role of nutrient and metabolism in physiology and disease, including the mechanisms of nutrient sensing and mTORC1 signaling. We are particularly interested in how metabolic pathways control immune responses, and try to find novel druggable targets for treatment of immune-related diseases.
