Dr. Xing's research interests include cellular and molecular immune mechanisms of host defences against both acute and chronic infectious diseases, including those caused by Gram-negative bacteria, mycobacteria and viruses.
 
His research explores modulation of host defense by transgene expression of cytokines and other immune modulatory molecules and immune protection from tuberculosis by a new generation of vaccines, including attenuated organism based, bacterial plasmid DNA-based and viral-based vaccines.
