Interleukin-17-mediated inflammation in prostate cancer and lupus


Dr. You is interested in investigating the roles of interleukin-17-mediated inflammation in prostate cancer (a male-specific disease) and lupus (a disease predominantly affecting women). His laboratory uses genetically modified mouse models to reveal the mechanisms of prostate cancer initiation and progression. He and his collaborators are studying how the genes, hormones, environment, and social factors interact together to promote lupus pathogenesis, especially in a sex-based manner.
