Research Focus

The research of HDDC members explores many aspects of mucosal biology that includes epithelial barriers and their connective tissue interactions, pathogenic and commensal microbial flora, and the complex cell populations responsible for innate and acquired immune protection. The HDDC provides an important meeting point and technical resource for researchers in the Harvard Medical Area who are studying Epithelial and Mucosal Biology in this broad context.
