Upon damage of the intestinal barrier, a complex interaction between the immune system, the epithelium and surrounding cells is required to promote mucosal healing and tissue repair. My main project focuses on investigating how the immune system orchestrates changes in the tissue to eventually modulate repair with the aim to enhance recovery. Currently I am analyzing the function of B cells in this complex process using classical immunological methods as well as single-cell genomics.
