Employer Profile

The Chu laboratory at UC San Diego School of Medicine studies the complex interactions between the trillions of diverse microbes and the host in the mammalian gastrointestinal tract. We are focused on the fundamental role of commensal microbiota in the education, induction, and maintenance of the host immune system during health and disease. Our research is centered at the interface of microbiome and immunology, with the goal of mechanistically
understanding the role of the microbiome in preventing and treating immune-mediated diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
