Title of talk: "Regulation of the Host-Microbiota Relationship"

Dr. Alenghat's laboratory investigates epithelial and immune cell homeostasis in intestinal health and disease. Dr. Alenghat's goals are to provide insight into molecular mechanisms, including epigenomic pathways that mediate the host-microbiota relationship, and to examine how this level of regulation affects innate immunity and chronic conditions, such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
