Welcome to the Jiang lab on systems immunology. A
dysfunctional or dysregulated immune system not only fails
to offer protection, it can also introduce unnecessary
immune responses such as allergies or autoimmune diseases.
The key to immune modulation and engineering and
regenerative medicine is to understand how the normal
immune system works. However, a full understanding of the
complex interactions among immune cells and between immune
cells and cytokines and chemokines requires a quantitative
and systems approach. Using high-throughput sequencing and
single-cell analysis in combination with quantitative
analysis, we are interested in answering the following
questions: How does the immune system develop and age?
What are the molecular signatures of autoimmune diseases?
Why does the immune system tolerate tumors? Answers to
these questions are important in establishing metrics for
immune health and providing biomarkers for diagnosis and
