Welcome to Yeung Lab

The Yeung Lab’s research program is to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms governing autoimmunity.

The central theme of my research program is to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms governing autoimmunity towards discovery of molecular tools for improved disease diagnosis, treatment, outcomes and prevention – the foundations for precision medicine. Specifically, I study the mechanisms responsible for initiating and sustaining the immune response in autoimmunity with a focus on rare diseases of childhood – Kawasaki Disease, Systemic Vasculitis and Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis.
