Research Interests

My research group is interested in the transcriptional control of B cell development, differentiation and malignant transformation. Currently, my research mainly focuses on the function and biochemical mechanisms of two disease-associated transcription factors BCL6 and BACH2. My lab is conducting two major research directions:  1) how BCL6 controls germinal center B cell development and the phenotype of B-cell lymphoma; and 2) the effect of BACH2 on B-cell development, lymphoma, leukemia and Inflammatory bowel disease.  The overall goal is to identify therapeutic targets in treatment of human lymphoma and autoimmune diseases as well as improve vaccination strategies
