Zakir Khan, PhD, at Cedars-Sinai
Personal Statement

My current research interests involve studying new mechanisms that regulate myeloid cell immunity. A particular focus area is understanding the role of renin-angiotensin system (RAS) in the function of myeloid-derived cells, with emphasis on the role of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE1 and ACE2) in homeostasis and immune responses of macrophages and neutrophils to infections, tumors and chronic illnesses like atherosclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease.
