Powrie Group | Mucosal Immunology
Work in the Powrie lab is focused on understanding the interaction between the intestinal microbiota and the host immune system and how this mutualistic relationship breaks down in inflammatory bowel disease and cancer.
A multi-disciplinary approach is used to identify:
- host cellular and molecular pathways that control the balance between homeostasis and inflammation and
- how microbial components control these responses.
