My current research program is to study the immune response against acute/persistent viral infections in the well-established LCMV murine model, with particular emphasis on the mechanisms and factors that determine the nature and kinetic patterns of functional inactivation and/or physical deletion of virus-specific T cells during persistent infection of a mature host with LCMV.

Immunological mechanism for LCMV infecting host. How to prevent persistent viral infections. Why the different LCMV strain can cause different infecting consequences.

My research projects include generating and analyzing animals deficient in a variety of molecular chaperones to better understand the role of molecular chaperones in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disease and cancer. My research interests also extend to the analysis of the signaling events in the generation and maintenance of anergic CD8+ antigen-specific lymphocytes in a persistent infection of lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus.
