Our lab is interested in defining the role of innate immunity in homeostasis, repair, and disease in the respiratory tract, where environmental determinants play a key role in both immunopathogenesis and health. Using biochemical, molecular, and genomic approaches in mouse and human model systems, we focus on the cellular and molecular signals underlying the initiation and persistence of type 2 immunity at mucosal sites. Our ultimate goal is to understand key regulatory features to prevent and treat diseases such as asthma.
