Glia and macrophages in immunity and beyond

My laboratory focuses on the molecular and epigenetic mechanisms regulating the development and role of Drosophila glia and macrophages. These cells are involved in the immune response and also control tissue homeostasis by sensing and responding to the environment. Assessing how these mechanisms are evolutionarily conserved allows us to understand the biology of cells that play key roles in development and physiology.
