Mucosal Immunity and Microbiota



Gérard Eberl is investigating immunity mecanisms. Pro-inflammatory cells, stromal cells and microbiota all interact to define health and immunity of the host, and its interaction with the environment. Using mouse models, Gérard Eberl and his team aim at defining the mechanisms by which these equilibria are maintained during health and broken during pathology.
