We are currently focusing on studying the roles of cytokines and chemokines in human diseases, with particular interest in exploring the effects of innate immunity on autoimmunity, infectious diseases and cancers. Ongoing projects in Dr. Liu’s lab include focus on investigation of (1) the role of the IL-12 cytokine family in protective immunity directed against Mycobacterial tuberculosis, (2) the role of IL-10 in the pathogenesis of juvenile idiopathic arthritis and SLE, and (3) the molecular mechanisms of chemokine-mediated tumor growth and metastasis.
