Noval Rivas Lab

Magali Noval Rivas, PhD lab at Cedars-Sinai
Personal Statement

As a cellular and molecular immunologist, my focus has been to understand how microbes and the host immune system interact with each other during health and disease. My investigations on the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in oral tolerance breakdown and food allergy development has led to several breakthroughs, revealing a fundamental and pathological mechanism of regulatory T cells reprograming into a Th2-like phenotype and has evidenced intestinal microbiota dysbiosis associated with food allergy development."
