Regulatory mechanisms in the immune system

Research work in Lin’s laboratory combines molecular biology and mouse gene knockout models to study the mechanisms of gene expression or post-translational modifications in the regulation of immune system development and functions. Dr. Lin’s group employs single B cell-screening platform to isolate pathogen-specific or cancer-associated monoclonal antibodies. Her group studies the mode of action of monoclonal antibodies in disease progression, as well as in the applications of disease therapy.

Her major research interests are listed as 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
  • Post-translational modification by glycosylation in B cells
  • Single B cell-screening platform and the effector functions of antibody
