Areas of Focus of the Konnikova Lab

Maintenance of mucosal homeostasis is key to proper development of both healthy microbiome and proper immune development. Dysregulation of this process can lead to both uncontrolled inflammation and autoimmune diseases. Using human samples, the Konnikova Lab focuses on understanding how proper mucosal immunity develops and how its dysregulation leads to disease.

Members of the Konnikova Lab team are currently focused on these subject areas:

  1. Placental Immune Development
  2. Gastrointestinal Immune Development in Health and Disease
  3. Developing a Pipeline of Simultaneously Analyzing CyTOF and Clinical Data
CyTOF analysis of peripheral blood and small and large intestinal immune cells of a patient.
