We are interested in understanding the impact of the gut microbiome, a vast population of microorganisms that inhabits our intestines, in regulating many aspects of human health and disease. To accomplish these goals, our lab employs biological and chemical approaches including the tools of molecular and cellular immunology, microbiology, chemical biology, organic chemistry, biochemistry, and cell biology.
