I will contribute my expertise in mucosal immunology to the investigators of the Center. Interactions of food components with mucosal immune system of the gastrointestinal tract are critical for shaping the overall immune status and for the development of immune pathologies such as allergies and inflammation. The Center will provide me a unique platform for interactions with colleagues in the area of nutrition and food sciences which may be critical for the development of interdisciplinary research and will help familiarize biomedical investigators with the complexity of the world of food.
