Research Summary

The goal of Dr. Sumida's research is to understand the gene regulatory circuit that governs immune cell function in the context of immune homeostasis and diseases in human. Fine-tuned immune regulation is somehow rewired in disease settings due to dysfunctional properties of diverse types of immune cells. We are focused on elucidating the rewired regulatory network that cause disease development and progression by applying transcriptomic, epigenetic and proteomic approaches for both bulk and single-cell resolution.
