Our Laboratory focuses on understanding the regulation of the inflammatory response at a molecular level and elucidating how these events may participate in human disease. The work includes cellular and molecular studies, genetic animal models, and translational work with patients suffering from inflammatory conditions, particularly inflammatory bowel disease.
