Lynn Soong, MD, PhD

Research in Dr. Soong's laboratory is focused on cutaneous and visceral leishmaniases, human parasitic diseases transmitted by infected sand flies. Using mouse and hamster as models, she is examining the differential responses of target cells (macrophages and dendritic cells) to parasite infection; the impact of dendritic cell-parasite interaction on T cell activation; the role of T helper subsets and their produced cytokines/chemokines in the control of infection and disease pathogenesis; and the factors of parasite or vector origins that may influence the outcome of infection.
