Deciphering Complex Disorders by Investigating the Role of Immune Response and Host-Microbe Interaction
Our laboratory uses a multidisciplinary approach that includes proteomics, immunology, and biochemistry to understand complex gastrointestinal and neuropsychiatric disorders through molecular mapping of patients’ immune responses. Our research is translation and aimed at identifying novel diagnostic biomarkers, understanding disease mechanism, and finding therapeutic targets.
