The focus of my translational research is on elucidating the molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in mediating disease remission and treatment-refractory inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in children. Utilizing high dimensional flow cytometry and single-cell RNA sequencing coupled with in vitro functional assays, specific cytokine pathways and cell-to-cell interactions that contribute to the pathogenesis of IBD are being investigated with the goal of identifying novel therapeutic targets.
