Research activities

A majority of my laboratory’s major research projects stem from our original discovery and molecular characterization of two human cytokine genes, IFN-b and IL-2.  Our recent research focuses on how self-derived molecules, released by cell death or overexpressed in living cells, regulate inflammation, cancer and immunity.
