Recognition of DNA by the innate immune system

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.
