  • Key Words: Influences of stress and drug abuse on neuroendocrine and neuroimmune systems

My current research focuses on understanding how stress promotes infection, cancers and alcohol-related diseases using the laboratory rodent as an animal model . Also, we are evaluating the feasibility of cell therapy, gene therapy and tissue-targeted transgenic procedures to understand and prevent stress problems and cancers in normal and alcoholic patients.
