Immunology / Inflammation / Hematology
GSBSE researchers study how the body’s immune response and inflammation contribute to a variety of diseases, including infectious disease, cancer, diabetes. The impact of the microbiome on health is another area of research. Model systems such as zebrafish are being used to study Pseudomonas, Streptococcus, and yeast infection. Viruses being studied include JC polyomavirus and influenza. Chronic and acute inflammation resulting from toxicants, trauma, or disease are additional areas of research.
