My research interests generally focused on understanding host-pathogen interactions. In particular, I\'m interested in: 1) diagnosis and survey of the most common fish diseases (bacterial, viral, and parasitic ) affecting fish species in the Great Lakes, as well as the pathogenic mechanisms of infectious diseases; 2) fish immune responses, including the involvement of both innate and adaptive immunity against infections; 3) nutritional and environmental impacts on disease outbreaks and host immunity; 4) development of strategies for fish disease control (early diagnostic tools and novel vaccine/immunostimulants).
