Research Description

Dr. Chen’s research involves the investigation of primary immunodeficiency diseases, with an emphasis in genetics and disease pathogenesis, and immune dysregulation in immune deficiency disorders. She has been involved in the gene discovery of NFKB2 as a cause of an inherited primary immunodeficiency disease syndrome.
