Research FieldDecipher the tumor immune evasive mechanisms and develop new molecules and combinations for immune-oncology targets

Research InterestsThe central research focus of our lab is to examine the intimate dialogues between cancer cells and tumor microenvironment by comprehensive understanding of tumor immune evasive mechanisms, and translate this mechanistic understanding to develop small molecule drugs as the next generation of immunotherapy. To this end, we are developing small molecules that disrupt immune checkpoint PD-1/PD-L1 axis, and small molecules that attenuate the functions of TAM, MDSCs and Tregs within tumor microenvironment, to restore anti-tumor immunity.
