Welcome to the Cho Lab!


Our research interest is on the molecular mechanisms underlying uncontrolled inflammatory responses in infectious and inflammatory diseases. Currently, we focus on a pro-inflammatory cytokine macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) but intend to expand our studies to other proteins associated with these diseases. We use a variety of techniques to address outstanding questions in these areas of research including biosensor-based label-free cellular assay system, biochemical and biophysical methods such as X-ray crystallography, NMR and high-throughput screening, as well as animal models of human diseases.
