We are interested in understanding how the innate immune system senses danger signals. Our research focuses on mechanisms of intracellular sensing of DNA – a fundamental strategy of innate immunity. A major goal is to inspire efforts for implementing strategies that interfere with innate DNA responses to treat inflammatory conditions in humans more efficiently.
