    Research Interests

    We focus on understanding how immune systems control the mucosal homeostasis in the gut. We are investigating the function and development of the intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes (IELs). We also have interest to understand how the gut flora controls the intestinal homeostasis, especially the role of pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) in this process.
