Labs and Faculty Pages

Campfield Lab

Studying inflammation and immunity in the lung, partly focused on the role of follistatin-like protein 1 (FSTL-1).

Coyne Lab

Research primarily focused on the polarized epithelium that lines the gastrointestinal tract and placental trophoblasts.

Dermody Lab

Studying the molecular pathogenesis of mammalian reovirus and Chikungunya virus infections.

DePas Lab

Developing a clear picture of the geography of infection sites, determining how the spatial structure impacts bacterial activity and interactions with host cells, and recapitulating important aspects of the infection environment.

Hand Lab

Studying immune cells of the intestine and how they respond to the first interactions with colonizing microorganisms.

Kane Lab

Researching genetic and immunological basis for protective antiviral immune responses, as well as the molecular details underlying the direct inhibition of retroviral replication by restriction factors.

Lin Lab

Focusing on the immune factors that control Mycobacterium tuberculosis  (Mtb) infection to improve vaccine and treatment efforts.

Williams Lab

Focused primarly on research of the cell entry, immunity, and pathogenesis of human metapneumovirus (HMPV).
