Research Interests

Prolonged or chronic inflammation is typically characterized by tissue destruction and by a progressive shift in the types of inflammatory cells present within the affected tissue. Thus, while beneficial for maintaining the host’s homoeostasis, inflammation also frequently contributes to the development of diseases, most notably, infectious diseases, allergy, autoimmunity, and cancer. Our common interest is a better understanding, and ultimately the control of various inflammation-associated diseases. Research includes, (1) HMGB1 in the regulation of inflammation and oncogenesis. (2) Identification and characterization of self-derived molecules which regulate inflammation and immunity. (3) The IRF family of transcription factors in the regulation of inflammation and immunity
