The Sonnenberg Laboratory is composed of a diverse group of postdoctoral researchers, students, and technicians working to elucidate the mechanisms by which the mammalian immune system controls tissue homeostasis, immunity, inflammation and cancer. Our focus is to define novel pathways contributing to chronic diseases and develop novel preventative, therapeutic and curative strategies. The Sonnenberg Laboratory has published our major findings in journals such as Nature, Science, Nature Medicine and Immunity. As part of the Jill Roberts Institute for Research in Inflammatory Bowel Disease, the Sonnenberg Lab has a particular focus on investigating the role of the gut microbiome and mammalian immune system in intestinal health and disease.
Talented graduate students and postdoctoral researchers are encouraged to directly contact Dr. Sonnenberg to discuss potential rotation projects and open positions in the laboratory.
