Academic Philosophy

My passion for academia is based on my personal belief that each student has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world.I believe in “no student left behind”. Through education each student must self-discover his/her potential.

 
Research Summary

My research focuses on immunology and inflammation in allergic, immunologic and infectious viral diseases and cancers. The current research programs include: molecular biology and genetics of IgE responsiveness, molecular mechanisms of virus infection, development of prophylactic/therapeutic gene transfer, development of genetic antivirals, molecular basis of genetic predisposition to inflammatory diseases and application of nanotechnology to biomedicine.
