Research Interests

The major research interest of my lab is adeno-associated virus (AAV)-mediated gene therapy of human diseases. The areas that we are currently working with AAV vectors are anti-angiogenic gene therapy for solid tumors, dendritic cell-based vaccines for cancer immunotherapy, and gene therapy for metabolic bone diseases. In addition, the lab is also focused on basic biology of the vector and vector modifications to achieve high-efficiency gene transfer and targeting.
