Research published in Cell Reports

Our research has shown that a pathogen-sensing molecule plays a vital role in keeping gastrointestinal (GI) systems healthy. The molecule – called Absent in Melanoma 2, or AIM2 – detects the DNA of harmful microorganisms (pathogens) and regulates inflammation in the gut. The findings were published in Cell Reports.

News Release: Research finding could lead to targeted therapies for inflammatory bowel diseases
