Underhill Lab

The Underhill Laboratory is interested in understanding how our immune systems interact with bacteria and fungi that may cause disease, and how the immune system distinguishes these organisms from those that make up the microbiome. Recent studies in the Underhill Laboratory have revealed that fungi in the intestinal microbiome have important, lasting effects on the immune system. The Underhill Lab is interested in identifying the fungi in the microbiome (the "mycobiota") and understanding how they change during disease.
