My laboratory currently focus on two major research projects 1) to study the properties of novel adjuvants that induce the activation of mucosal DCs, and 2) to elucidate cellular and molecular mechanisms that rebalance overt inflammatory immune responses induced by pathogenic commensal bacteria within the mucosal side.
- Epithelial CaSR deficiency alters intestinal integrity and promotes proinflammatory immune responses.
