Xudong Li, PhD, Rotation Advisor

My project consists of analyzing the effects of modulating the metabolic profiles of regulatory T (Treg) cells on their suppressive function, behavior, and proclivity to adapt toward expressing a Th1-like phenotype and function in inflammatory, low-glucose and high-lactate environments. Specifically, I am investigating the effects of knocking out Lactate Dehydrogenase b (Ldhb) on Treg metabolism and function.
