3.1 million Americans
LIVE WITH INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE
Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis affect 1.3% of the population with 70,000 new cases diagnosed every year. IBD is caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors that lead to an abnormal immune reaction to the normal bacteria found in the intestine.
Congratulations to Sara for receiving a poster award at the ISMMS Department of Pathology Trainee Research Day!
We're excited to welcome Dr. Sajan Achi as a postdoctoral fellow to the lab! We look forward to learning more about microbiology as he works to expand our understanding of the relationship between commensals and gamma delta IELs.
We'll be presenting our work at the 10th International Gamma Delta T cell Conference in Lisbon! Please stop by our posters on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Weili Xu, PhD provides an insightful summary of why we need to examine the functional significance of CD103 signaling in the IEL compartment
Karen chats with the hosts of Immunology Podcast about gamma delta T cells, IBD and immunology-themed cakes!
New publication on the role of specific microbiota in promoting gamma delta IEL proliferation and migration.
