Research Interests:

Aging is associated with decreased expansion of T cells upon stimulation. By using influenza virus, LCMV and TCR transgenic mice, I am working on the mechanisms of impairment of specific CD8 T cell response in aged mice, which may have an important implication for understanding the alteration of immune response in aged individuals.
