Multiple systems in the living organism function in an orchestral way for regulating physiological behaviors, which greatly relies on the precise communication between them. Chemicals, including neurotransmitters, neuromodulators as well as hormones are critical signaling molecules that meditating these communications. Our group is interested in developing novel techniques that could potentially enable the identification of novel signaling molecules, real-time monitoring of these molecules, as well as dissecting their function in regulating body homeostasis. Specifically, we are interested in molecules involved in the cross-talk between nervous system and immune system, and how the dysregulation in their signal transmission may lead to pathological diseases.
