  • Research

    Dr. López-Yglesias’ research program is characterizing how the transcription factor T-bet regulates the innate immune response against intracellular pathogens (Toxoplasma gondii, Salmonella) during acute infection. The lab uses transgenic mouse models to better understand how the complex interactions of the host-pathogen-microbiota impact innate immune cell effector function, intestinal tissue injury and immunity following oral infection with T. gondii or Salmonella, two leading causes of foodborne-related deaths in the United States.
