Dr. Zheng's research interests have been in the statistical methods for longitudinal data with time-to-event outcome, with a focus on using semi-parametric methods for estimating time-dependent ROC curves which are useful for evaluating the ability of longitudinal biomarkers or algorithms to identify cancer early, or signal disease prognosis. Her work is also focused on statistical methods for family-based genetic association studies. She is presently providing support to a number of research proposals and applications in the cancer prevention research program, including serving as an investigator in the DMCC of the Early Detection Research Network.

The projects in Dr. Ziegler’s laboratory are focused on the factors that control normal immune regulation, as well as those that contribute to disease development and progression. The laboratory is currently engaged in two areas of investigation: the genes and cell populations that are involved in controlling autoimmune-type responses, and the role of epithelial cytokines (TSLP, IL-25, and IL-33) in the regulation of barrier responses to infection and allergen challenge. Finally, they have also found a novel role for TSLP in the regulation of tumor progression, and have established a program in tumor biology, including metastatic breast cancer, colitis-associated cancer and melanoma.
