The focus of my group is to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms of lung pathology. In this group, the focus will be on the following projects:

The role of microbiome and virome sensing in the lung in homeostasis and infection: In this work package, We would like to understand how microbiota in the lung are sensed via both TLR/MyD88 and RIGI systems.

  1. The cross talk between innate and adaptive immune response (Immune training).
  2. Epigenetic modification in both innate and adaptive immune cells after severe infections in the lung and gut and their extended effect on other non-communicable diseases like allergic diseases.
  3. The role of EVs in altering the epigenome of the lung via Particulate Matter pollutant particles.
