Galia Lab

Our lab is studying novel regulatory mechanisms that control innate immunity in intestinal health and disease.

We currently focus on the regulation of innate immune responses in the intestinal tract through long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs), post-translational modifications, immunometabolism, microbiome and host-microbiota interactions.
