Our Research

The main goal of our research is to better understand how microbes communicate with their hosts at mucosal surfaces. To achieve this goal, our interdisciplinary approach is to address questions related to microbial pathogenesis, regulation of gene expression in the host cells, and communication between the nervous system, the immune system, and the gut microbiota. 

Financial support for our work provided by the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, private institutions, and private donors.
