Qing Deng Lab

Deng Lab Group

Our lab is interested in the mechanisms that regulate neutrophil migration and activation, more specifically their response to tissue injury and infection. The neutrophil is a hallmark of inflammation and neutrophilic inflammation, if not properly resolved, is the driving force behind a spectrum of human inflammatory diseases. Hopefully, our understanding of neutrophilic inflammation will help alleviate diseases such as arthritis, cancer and auto-inflammation. We are also interested in understanding pathogen-host interactions using zebrafish model and the strength relies on the combination of the genetics in both systems. We want to create a lab where happy scientists do solid science.
