Dr. Yung's research focuses on understanding biological mechanisms in the aging process – in particular, explaining the relationship between immune senescence and the development of immune and inflammatory diseases in the elderly. He also investigates the effect of aging on dendritic cell function to help explain why elderly patients are at risk for a multitude of immune/inflammatory diseases. Yung is director of Michigan's Institute of Gerontology.
