Feng Feng is a Research Assistant Professor in the Microbiology Department at Boston University School of Medicine. He received a PhD in immunology and a Masters in Computer Science at Cornell University. He then came to Dr Kepler’s group for a postdoctoral fellowship in computational immunology. His research interest is in innate immunity and dendrite cell immunology, as well as mathematical modeling of immunity. Currently, he is working on an NIH funded project. The overall goal of this project is to develop computational tools to aid in the development of vaccine adjuvants. He is also working together with other researchers to develop statistical models/tools to understand the immune responses/events occurring after the adjuvant challenges.
