The Garrett Lab is interested in defining the dynamic interactions between the mucosal immune system and gut microbiota. Our experimental questions are grounded in understanding how interactions between intestinal microbial communities and the immune system contribute to the pathophysiology of both inflammatory bowel disease and colorectal cancer. Our lab uses a variety of genomic, cellular and molecular techniques as well as germ-free, gnotobiotic and conventional mouse models to investigate gut microbial communities, mucosal immune cell subsets, and their contribution to the development of inflammatory bowel disease and colorectal cancer.
