Roles of microbes in disease, beneficial symbiosis, pathogenesis, parasitology, and immunology
Research in Lin laboratory focuses on medical mycology: We study the molecular mechanisms of fungal pathogenesis and microbial communication and development. We also seek to develop novel antifungal treatments and vaccines. We primarily use two diverged fungal pathogens in our investigation: Cryptococcus neoformans and Aspergillus fumigatus.…
We study CRISPR-Cas immune systems that protect prokaryotes from viruses and provide powerful research tools for important biotechnology and biomedical applications.
