Cardiovascular Research Interests:

Primary area of research:

  • Role of different T cell subsets in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases
  • Inflammation, Toll-like receptors, and innate regulations

Related areas of research:

  • Regulatory T cells and atherosclerosis
  • Toll-like receptor signaling and its relevance to atherogenesis

Summary of cardiovascular research:

The major research interests in Dr. Peng’s Lab are focused on identifying the roles of different types of tumor-associated regulatory T cells (Tregs) in suppression of anti-tumor immunity and development of strategies to overcome tumor suppressive microenvironments induced by Tregs and tumor cells. Dr. Peng and his research group are also interested in critical roles of innate and adaptive immune responses in the pathogenesis and regulation of atherosclerosis.
