Research interests

Dr. Fang’s research interests focus on understanding of the immune regulatory mechanisms involved in the inability of the host defense system to control systemic infection with intracellular bacteria, such as rickettsiae. She is specifically interested in studying how dendritic cells mediate a defective innate immune response and a suppressed effector T cell response which lead to overwhelming infection in fatal acute spotted fever rickettsiosis. Her current research had explored the role of T regulatory cells in rickettsial infection in vivo and in vitro by using mouse models.
