Biographical Info

The goal of my research is to investigate the microbially produced factors that protect Intestinal epithelial cells from inflammation-induced death by maintaining protective levels of HMGB1, which our lab has shown to be expressed at lower cellular levels in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) patients. I will explore the mechanism of how microbial changes in the gut lumen (dysbiosis) regulate HMGB1, which may be relevant to future microbial therapies for inflammatory disorders.
