Yeung Lab

Welcome to the Yeung Lab!

The Yeung Lab's research program is to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms governing autoimmunity in working towards the discovery of molecular tools for Kawasaki disease (KD) and Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA). Specifically, focusing on the development of platforms and tools to improve research efficiency in both inflammatory diseases and studying the mechanisms responsible for initiating and sustaining the immune response in autoimmunity.
