The immune defence of the gut mucosa

About this team

The aim of our research is to understand mainly the adaptive arm of the immune system in the intestinal mucosa, and the impact of dysregulated immune repsonses in the gut mucosa in different inflammatoriy conditions such as IBD, IBS and Mikroskopic colitis. The research group uses patient material as well as a mouse model for colitis, the inhibitory G-protein-sub unit Gi2 deficient (Gi2-/-) mice that spontaneously develop a chronic inflammatory bowel disease.
