Research Interests


Dr. Tang's ongoing research focuses on genetic and epigenetic contributions to infection and immunity in human populations. Immunogenetic studies deal with genes that govern innate and adaptive immune responses to infectious diseases or vaccination. Epigenetic analyses target CpG methylation and microRNA. Disease models range from HIV/AIDS to malignant glioma.
