Zaki Lab

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.
