Iliev Lab

The Iliev Laboratory studies the interaction between the commensal microbiota and the immune cells at the mucosal surfaces of the intestine. The lab's primary interest is investigating the role of the fungal communities (mycobiota) in mucosal immunity and their interactions with the bacterial counterpart of the microbiome during health and disease. We are ultimately looking for approaches to modulate this interaction to influence pathologies and promote health.

Our Research

The Iliev Laboratory investigates the molecular mechanisms by which fungal and bacterial symbionts influence host immunity, neuroimmune processes, and inflammation.
