Regulatory mechanisms in the immune system

Research work in Lin’s laboratory combines molecular biology and mouse gene knockout model to understand the mechanisms of gene expression or post-translational modification in regulation of the immune system development and function. The major research interests are listed in the follows:

  • Gene regulatory circuits in the immune system, focusing on studying the mode of action of a master regulator of cellular differentiation, Blimp-1
  • Molecular mechanisms of tumorigenesis of plasma cells and mature B cells
  • Transcriptional regulation in dendritic cell development and maturation
  • Glycomics and glycobiology in B cells
