Research Interests

“As a graduate student in Dr. Cui’s lab, I am interested in studying the origin and clonal selection of CD8 memory T cells based on T cell receptor (TCR) at the single cell level, following acute infection. By doing this, we will be able to know the selection of high affinity CD8 memory T cell clones which can mount more robust immune response in recall infection and can be a potential candidate for vaccination.”
