 Lukacher,Aron_suit_profiles Aron Lukacher, M.D.,Ph.D. Immune responses to persistent viral infections
 missingphoto Milena Bogunovic, M.D.,Ph.D. Mononuclear phagocytes are distributed throughout all layers of the gastrointestinal tract including the mucosa facing the lumen and the muscularis externa facing the peritoneum. While being closely related, these cells are heterogeneous and can be further divided into dendritic cells and macrophages based on their preferentially antigen-presenting or phagocytic properties. The main focus of my lab is to understand diversity, development and function of mononuclear phagocyte network in the gut during homeostatic state, infection and inflammatory bowel disease.
