Research Interests

Molecular and cellular mechanism of heparin induced thrombocytopenia (HIT).

“I became interested in immunology since I was a medical student. I was trained as a hematologist in medical school, and I took basic and advance courses on immunology since a lot of blood disorders are closely related to the immune system. When I performed my internship, I focused on B cell malignancies as well as antibody mediated autoimmune disease. Therefore, I chose Dr. Wang's lab focusing on B cell biology. My project in the lab is to identify molecular and cellular mechanism of an antibody-mediated thrombocytopenia (heparin induced thrombocytopenia).”
