Research Focus

Please visit the KING LAB website for more information.

We are exploring the mechanisms of lymphocyte fate diversification. Using models of both infection and tolerance our lab focuses on two broad questions:

1) How does T cell receptor signal strength regulate the quality and extent of CD4 T cell differentiation?; and

2) What are the molecular mechanisms that link T cell receptor strength with the generation of diverse CD4+ T cell fates?
