Associate Professor, Medicine-Genetic Medicine
Our lab aims to understand how natural selection has contributed to the evolution of our species and to which extent past selection events impact present-day...
Professor, Pathology
Innate and Innate-Like Lymphocytes Our laboratory studies the populations of lymphocytes that reside at mucosal barriers and perform rapid innate-like functions to...
Professor, Medicine-Gastroenterology
The focus of my group is on the study of the intestinal microbes and how they interact with the host. This relationship is fundamental to our health and, when perturbed...

Inflammasomes are multi-protein complexes that are responsible for the induction of proinflammatory cytokines and inflammatory cell death. They are unique in innate...
Professor, Pathology
Assistant Professor, Pritzker Institute for Molecular Engineering
Our research aims to uncover the grammar – or general rules – governing how successful immune responses work to stop an infection or remove diseased cells while keeping...
Professor, Surgery-Transplant
My lab has had a long-standing interest in understanding the basis of immunological tolerance and humoral immunity following allogeneic transplantation. We have been...
