Deng Lab

Our lab is interested in the mechanisms regulating neutrophil migration and activation in tissue injury, infection, and cancer. The neutrophil is a hallmark of inflammation, and neutrophilic inflammation is the driving force behind a spectrum of human inflammatory diseases. Restraining neutrophilic inflammation will help alleviate diseases such as arthritis, cancer, and auto-inflammation. We are also interested in generating super neutrophils that fight infection and cancer. We are a group of happy scientists exploring the unknowns.
