Zhen Lab: Somatic Genetics, Development of Immune Responses; Immunosenescence, Autoimmunity

We are studying the molecular and cellular bases for the fundamental properties of an effective immune response, such as specificity, affinity, and memory using the techniques of cell and molecular biology, and in vitro and in vivo models of immune responses.

Also, we are applying similar approaches to understand the pathology of aging and autoimmune diseases.

On-going work in this laboratory has focused on the following topics.

  • Antigen-driven Lymphocyte Differentiation
  • Germinal Center Biology
  • Immunosenescence
  • Autoimmunity
