Chen Dong

Name: Chen Dong                                                






Research Area:

We are interested in studying the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying immune tolerance and immune responses and hope that our research will lead to new approaches of modulating the immune system in a variety of immune diseases and cancers.

1. T lymphocyte differentiation and function

2. Cytokine function and signaling in inflammation

3. Immune tolerance and tumor immunity
