Our research focuses primarily on three areas:

  1. We develop activity-based probes to understand the metabolic activity catalyzed by the gut microbiome during different disease states.
  2. We also characterize the small-molecule metabolites produced by the gut microbiota that regulate inflammation during inflammatory diseases and host defense during infection with enteric pathogens.
  3. Building on these discoveries, we develop chemical tools to modulate the immune response using photo-immune modulators to understand the roles of specific immune cell types in vivo.
