Talk:
Nod2 and its role in Crohn’s disease pathogenesis

Overview:

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.
