Our work is focused on studying ‘the glyco-code’, the structure of glycans present in different intestinal cells during the transition from healthy to inflamed mucosa. Together with Dr. Gabriel Rabinovich, we aim for a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying intestinal inflammation, and how glycosylation changes can mediate cellular processes relevant to immune tolerance. This could be key for dissecting IBD pathophysiology and new therapeutic approaches for this disease.
