When I commenced working in this field in 1989, under the guidance and inspiration of my supervisor and colleague Professor Barry Kay (National Heart and Lung Institute, London UK), a possible role for T cell-mediated immunity in asthma was regarded generally, and particularly in North America, with a degree of scepticism bordering on derision. Currently, owing in no small part to my careful analysis of the cellular and molecular immunopathology of the T cell component of asthmatic inflammation, the tide has now turned completely, and T cells are now regarded worldwide as playing a fundamental role in asthma pathogenesis. I am recognised internationally as a fundamental contributor to this important work (in fact my work with Barry Kay was highlighted as one of the milestones in asthma research in the past 200 years in the 2
    • official 2nd Centenary publication of the American Thoracic Society, a rare honour). It has had far reaching implications, not least for the clinical management of severe asthmatics, as elaborated below. In 2002, I was invited to join an American modern R&D pharmaceutical industry located in Taiwan. As the principal investigator and director of Section of Immunology, our team focused on mechanisms and target selection of G-protein coupled receptors (GPCR), particularly chemokines and chemokine receptors in allergic inflammation, autoimmune disease and tumour metastasis. Under my direction, our team set up a number of disease models in animals including asthmatic inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, colitis and skin transplantation rejection. Using these models, my team analysed the toxicology and pharmaceutical kinetics of a number of small molecule compounds which had the potential to be developed into antagonists and agonists for certain GPCRs. Collaboration with industry (grants in category C, E, H below) Together with Professors Kay and Corrigan, I have collaborated successfully with industry in a variety of basic science projects (effects of anti-asthma drugs on T cells, histamine inhibitors on endothelial cells, humanized monoclonal antibodies against IL-5 and IgE in clinical trials and novel targets for therapy of asthma. . In summary I have made fundamental inroads in the investigation of the role of Th-2 cells, Th-2 cytokines, Th-2 attracting chemokines, PGE2 and other mediators in asthma and other allergic inflammation, with tangible clinical consequences, and on the cellular and molecular pathology of severe phenotypes of asthma, including intrinsic asthma, glucocorticoid resistant and aspirin sensitive disease. My contribution to these fields is recognised by my peers worldwide. Future strategy My intention is to continue to develop laboratory-clinical based research in asthma and allergy. I will continue my studies on T cells, cytokines, chemokines and other molecules involved in the mechanisms of various clinical subgroups of asthma and new asthma therapies. I will also embrace existing Departmental and MRC Centre expertise (both basic, since we have an excellent group of molecular and cell biologists, and clinical staff) looking at the relationships between T cell cytokines, chemokines, leukotrienes and airways remodelling. Finally, I will continue to build up my research team and attract high quality research fellows. I will consolidate and further extend my national and international standing.
