Research Interest:

Our research focuses on a group of lymphocytes termed natural killer (NK) cells. They are an important component of body’s natural defense mechanisms and have innate ability to kill a broad range of tumor cells. Our goal is to find out how NK cells acquire their ability to kill tumor cells but not normal cells and how NK cell activation is regulated.
