The Burstein Research Lab

 

Our laboratory is focused on the molecular regulation of the inflammatory response, particularly in the intestinal tract. We investigate the regulation of inflammation using a variety of disciplines including molecular and cell biology, mouse models and human genetics. The laboratory has a long-standing interest in the biologic functions of COMMD proteins, which were discovered by our group in 2005.

The laboratory is part of the Division of Digestive and Liver Diseases, in the Department of Internal Medicine. The facilities are located in the South Campus of UT Southwestern, on the fifth floor of the Moss Building (J).
