Our research is focused on using a more physiologically relevant "gut-in-a-dish model" to understand the interaction of bacteria with intestinal tissue. This involves incorporating bacterial components into co-cultures between intestinal epithelial organoids and gut-resident innate immune cells. I am excited by the opportunity for multidisciplinary collaborations supported by this network.
