Research Activities

Pattern Recognition Receptors based research investigating:
  • The Toll-like receptor (TLRs), RIG-like Helicase (RLHs) and NOD-like receptors (NLRs)
  • Signal transduction pathways initiated upon recognition of both pathogen and endogenous TLR ligands
  • Structure/Function analysis of TLR signaling mediators
  • Negative regulation of these pathways to prevent chronic inflammation
  • Pathogen immunomodulation of these pathways/receptors

Techniques/Expertise

activation of NF-kB and IFNγ by various means
cell biology
TLR screening
Viral infections
TLR expressing cell lines
TLR/PRR/Signaling pathway
immortalized gene-deficient BMMs
