Nod2 and its role in Crohn’s disease pathogenesis


Research in my laboratory employs animal models of inflammatory bowel disease and considers how innate immunity and the microbiome shape immune homeostasis within the intestine. We study the function of a number of Crohn’s disease associated genes, including NOD2, and our current research focuses on how this pattern-recognition receptor contributes to regeneration of the intestine following injury.
