We just received a prestigious NIH/MIST grant!


We are happy to announce that our research has been awarded a grant from the Mucosal Immunology Studies Team, a NIH-funded consortium. We have shown that a transmembrane mucin on the surface of intestinal cells acts as a sensor that detects the intestine’s bacteria. With the help of the grant from NIH/MIST, we will be able to identify which intestinal bacteria that are recognized by transmembrane mucins and the signaling pathways involved in sensing of gut microbiota.
