Dr. Wu's current research includes Dysregulation of Immunity & Inflammation, Immunotherapy & Immune Intervention and Microbial Pathogenesis & Commensalism. These research areas are dedicated to the understanding of how commensal bacteria influence the inflammatory and immune response mediated by autoimmune disease. The goal of this work is focused on exploring the link between gut microbiota, mucosal immunity and autoimmune arthritis.
