Research Activities

Dr Yen is one of the leading experts in research regarding ovine and porcine lymphatic cannulation models. Applying the training as a veterinarian to research, he has established four novel lymphatic cannulation models in sheep and pigs for immunological and biomedical studies. Using these models, Dr Yen is able to study the in vivo, in situ and real-time host-pathogen interplay and immunobiology.
