Main Research Areas

We are focusing on the function of murine and human DC subpopulations to understand the development of specialized immune responses in lymphoid and non-lymphoid organs. In our research, we apply approaches of molecular biology, molecular immunology, and systems immunology, which will help to improve cancer immunotherapies, resolve chronic inflammatory responses, and suppress autoimmune reactions (Please see more details in ‘Research Concept’).
