Research Summary

The gastrointestinal (GI) tract contains the largest number of immune cells of any organ and more neurons than the spinal cord and brain stem. I am interested in how the immune and nervous systems communicate with each other and coordinate responses to infections or noxious substances. My research in the Medzhitov lab focuses on how ingested noxious substances are sensed by the GI tract and how the host responses mitigate the potential for damage and toxicity.
