My lab investigates the mechanisms by which sensory neurons shape immunity and how neuroimmune interactions contribute to the pathogenesis of human diseases. We combine techniques from neuroscience and immunology, mouse models of human diseases (infectious and non-infectious), and in vitro cultures of sensory neurons and immune cells to uncover the details of this neural control of immunity and to identify new approaches to treating immune-related diseases by targeting the sensory nervous system.
