I am currently a Professor at Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine and UConn School of Medicine in Farmington, CT. My research interests are understanding how human immune system works. I am particularly interested in immune aging, regenerative medicine, genetic code and reprogramming, immunotherapy of cancer, and HIV infection and pathogenesis.
I am also very much interested in accelerating technological advances and their potential future impact. Especially I believe exponential advances in biology, nanotechnology and artificial intelligence or machine learning are merging and creating a synergistic and remarkable progress in technology. I aim to follow and contribute to these advances with the hope that they will have positive impact on our health, greatly increasing our lifespans, enhancing our standard of living and improving our environment.
