Research Interests:

Lung macrophages monitor the boundary between the environment and the blood stream by the means of intracellular and surface pathogen recognition receptors. We are currently interested in understanding how the intracellular pathogen sensors (NOD-like receptors) work to regulate cytokines (especially IL-1beta) and cell death (apoptosis) via modulation of caspase-1.
