T. Kent Teague, Ph.D.
Adjunct Assistant Professor of Immunology


Research Interests

Basic immunology and tumor immunology. We use a variety of methodologies including flow cytometry, cell sorting, real-time PCR and Western blotting to study the roles of cytokines in promoting the survival, activation and differentiation of T cells.
