The Host Defense Laboratory uses basic, translational and clinical research to understand immune responses that combat pathogens and tumors and develop immunotherapeutics and vaccines.
Our lab aims to develop a nanoparticle-based vaccine platform to boost antigen-specific immunity against tumors and intracellular pathogens. We also explore sex steroid-mediated effects on epithelial cell proliferation and differentiation to enhance epithelial barrier protection
