From the human gut and oral cavity to sewage and marine ecosystems, me and my group use our expertise in microbiology and computation to study the ecology and evolution...
Assistant Professor, Pathology
esterhazy@uchicago.edu
Immunological niches in the digestive system We study how immune homeostasis is maintained in the digestive system, and how its failure can lead to diseases such as...
Professor, Microbiology
mgack@uchicago.edu
Understanding host-virus interactions is an essential step in developing safe and effective antimicrobials against existing and newly emerging pathogens. The early...
Professor, Microbiology
tgolovki@bsd.uchicago.edu
The primary goal of my laboratory is to understand how the innate immune system detects retroviral infection and initiates virus-neutralizing adaptive immune responses...
