The Michelsen Laboratory is particularly interested in the role of the innate immune system in the development of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Recent reports have shown that genetic variations in the gene encoding for a tumor necrosis factor family member called tumor necrosis factor-like cytokine 1A (TL1A) confer susceptibility to IBD.
