Research

My lab conducts research in the field of Immunology with an emphasis on the gut mucosa and the skin, the largest surfaces exposed to the external environment in the body. We focus on a fundamental immunological aspect, which is to unravel the mechanisms controlling leukocyte trafficking to the gastrointestinal mucosa and the skin, and its implications for protective and pathological immune responses in these compartments.
