Dr. Chen's laboratory studies immunological mechanisms and interventions of cancer. Their focus is on the double-edged role of autoimmunity and inflammation in cancer development and tumor killing, with a particular interest in age-associated tumorigenesis. They build animal models to mimic the genetic and genomic risks of human cancers, examine the cause and effect in tumorigenesis at molecular, cellular and systems levels, identify potential biomarkers of cancer development, and test potential interventions for cancer prevention and treatment.
