研究领域与方向

T cells play essential roles in immune response. We are studying T cells with two directions:

1. Functional genomics in primary T cells

We are applying genome-wide CRISPR/Cas9 screen in primary T cell in vivo to answer fundamental questions in T cell biology, including development, activation, proliferation and differentiation, as well as T cell fitness (e.g. exhaustion) in tumor microenvironment.  Identified novel genes and regulatory circuits have been used to design novel therapies for diseases.
2. Mechanisms of metabolic regulation of T cells

Metabolic reprogramming is a hallmark of T cell activation, but how metabolic pathways regulate T cell function remains poorly understood. We are using mouse models with gain- and loss-of-function of key metabolic enzymes to decipher metabolic regulation T cell, and try to target metabolism to treat immune-related diseases.
