Research interest

(1) Innate lymphoid cells are critical for innate immune response. There two major groups of innate lymphoid cells, innate lymphocytes with invariant antigen receptors such as NKT and gdT cells and innate lymphoid cells (ILCs). We defined a new subset of innate lymphocytes that have BCR and NK cell receptors, named NKB cells. NKBs produce a large amount of IL-18 and IL-12 during infection and prime ILC1s. We will further focus on the mechanism of NKB regulation and NKB-related diseases.

(2) Autophagy is an evolutionarily consistent process that engulfs unwanted proteins and organelles in double-membrane structure for degradation. Autophagy takes part in a lot of physiological process. Our research mainly focuses on autophagy in embryonic development and cell reprogramming. We found that autophagy is essential for the reprogramming of somatic cells and zygotes and initiation of autophagy during reprogramming is finely regulated. We also work on the role of autophagy in the development of immune system.

(3) Hematopoietic stem cells contribute to the construction of immune system that is required for the clearance of antigens and tumors. The disorder in hematopoietic system causes severe diseases. We mainly work on the development and differentiation of immune cells and the effect of genetic or epigenetic regulation on hematopoietic system. We hope to find out the key factor in the regulation of hematopoietic system and provide theoretic support for clinic trials.
