Zaki Lab's research focuses on the the study of gastrointestinal inflammation and cancer
Recognition of pathogens and danger signals by the host immune system represents an important physiological event that is critically important for host defense against infectious diseases as well as non-infectious diseases, including inflammation and tumorigenesis.
Meet the Principal Investigator
Hasan Zaki, Ph.D.
Hasan Zaki, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Pathology, studies gastrointestinal inflammation and cancer. His research interests include host-pathogen interactions, role of pathogen recognition receptors in gut homeostasis, molecular mechanisms of inflammatory bowel disease and colorectal cancer, signaling pathways of gastrointestinal disorders that could be targeted for therapeutic intervention and drug development.
