Research Interest:

Defective clearance of apoptotic cell can result in accumulation of apoptotic cell debris, causing severe tissue injuries and inflammation leading to a variety of diseases. In order to address the question of how efficient removal of such apoptotic cells affects (attenuates/exacerbates) disease pathologies, my current project is focused on establishing a way to dramatically increase the efficiency of cell corpse clearance.
