Wu Lab

Dysbiosis of gut microbiota causes many diseases, including systemic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis that affect gut-unrelated organs . Our lab focuses on a key question: how microbiota residing in the gut alter the development of non-gut diseases. We address this question by examining how commensal bacteria modulate their host’s mucosal and systemic immune responses. The results of our studies will generate novel therapies for dysbiosis-related diseases, the modern epidemic.
