Ince Lab

Project and Position Details
We are interested in working with motivated undergraduate students who can spend time in the laboratory to learn intestinal immunology and advance their laboratory skills. Intestinal immune system is associated with regulation of aberrant immune reactions, as seen in graft-versus-host disease after bone marrow or hematopoietic cell transplantation or in inflammatory bowel diseases. Our studies focus on T lymphocytes and gut microorganisms, such as helminths or gut bacteria that can regulate these aberrant and pathological immune responses. Students will purify immune cells from spleen or lymph nodes, characterize them in detail by multicolor flow cytometry, perform in vitro immune cell cultures besides various other experiments. Students will analyze DNA for various reasons.
