Email Profile Print Profile Overview Contact Info & Locations Programs & Services Division of Pediatric Allergy & Clinical Immunology Research Areas Anti-viral innate immunology Basic Immunology Cellular and Molecular Biology Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis) Overview Inflammation Skin Barrier Diseases Skin Biology Special Interests Research Interests My research focuses on the central topic in epidermis biology: the pathways that regulate stratified epidermis differentiation and the formation of a functional skin barrier. As the outermost tissue, the epidermis protects human body from various physical, chemical and microbial insults. A full functional skin barrier is paramount for human health. My research program will delineate the molecular mechanisms by which a normal functional epidermis barrier protects from environmental insults, how the environmental factors differentially shape keratinocytes’ epigenetic profile and transcriptome in individuals with different genetic background, and how epidermis and immune system reciprocally affect each other’s function. These studies will lead to better understand the pathogenesis of skin allergies, infections, inflammation, and tumors.

This survey is about the patient care experience and does not address crucial characteristics like medical decision-making, prescribing the best therapy, and patient outcomes. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the best score. Learn more about our patient satisfaction survey.
