Gallo Lab Focus
Our research is focused on fundamental basic science and clinical trial approaches towards understanding how the skin defends the body against infections and the environment. We apply modern techniques of biochemistry, immunology, microbiology, and genetics to model complex biological systems that study how the microbiome interacts with mammalian cells. Our goal is to translate this information into improved diagnostics and therapeutics to better understand and treat human disease.
