cancer, peptic ulcer disease.
My research interests include various aspects of mucosal immune
regulation. Research efforts in my laboratory have helped elucidate the
role of mucosal epithelial cells and myofibroblasts in local T cell
regulation during gastrointestinal inflammation. The interactions of H.
pylori and the gastric epithelium are being used as a relevant model
system of chronic mucosal inflammation. Also, we are interested in
understanding the H. pylori and host interactions that lead to
inflammation and tissue damage. Further, as gastric cancer is a deadly
form of cancer because there are no reliable diagnostic markers, our
lab is involved in studies to characterize early biomarkers of disease
for diagnostic purposes.
