A scientist specializing in gastrointestinal immunology, Dr. Hand focuses on the development and regulation of immune responses against microbiota, how gastrointestinal infection may “unleash” responses against commensal bacteria, and how the immune system is controlled to prevent overt pathology. His research has many applications and may provide insight into a variety of diseases affecting children, including Crohn’s disease, environmental enteropathy, and food allergies.
