Academic / Research
Internal Number: 123228
A post-doctoral research position is available in the Pasare Laboratory to study inflammatory responses downstream of pattern recognition receptors and the cross-talk between innate and adaptive immune systems. We are currently focused on the following projects
1. Innate control of adaptive immunity with a particular focus on IL-1 family of cytokines: The work focuses on understanding how different pathogens activate the innate immune system to induce tailored immune responses and the molecular pathways involved in pathogen recognition. 2. Role of inflammasome independent IL-1beta in systemic inflammation, auto-immunity and anti-tumor responses: The work foucuses on understanding how Effector and memory T cells induce pattern recognition receptor independent inflammation and identification of the molecules and receptors that induce T cell driven innate inflammation. The work has implications for several inflammatory diseases.
