…deciphering immune cell-mediated aspects of the gut-liver axis…
Projects in this area consider homeostasis and malfunctions of the gut-liver axis as the interplay between immune cells, microbiota, metabolism and other environmental factors.
B01 dissects dynamic changes in the gut-liver axis during postnatal development.
B02 studies the link between immune cell migration and hepatic manifestations of intestinal diseases.
B03 and B04 focus on the roles of hepatic and intestinal dendritic cells in maintaining homeostasis as well as in patients with chronic liver disease and impaired intestinal barrier functions.
B05 characterizes the consequences of gut-derived molecular signals on the origin and function of hepatic macrophages.
B06 studies the interrelation between hepatic and intestinal IgA producing plasma cells.
