Faculty Profile


My research background is mainly in regulation of immune responses, especially related to dendritic cells and T cells. I am currently using that work in projects related to the mouse and human microbiome. Our gnotobiotic mouse facility is currently examining the role of the microbiome in diseases ranging from inflammatory bowel disease to food allergies.
