Interview with Dr. Karen Edelblum: The role of ‘leaky gut’ in inflammatory bowel disease

Dr. Karen Edelblum recently moved from her position at The University of Chicago to Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, where she is now Assistant Professor of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine at the Center for Immunity and Inflammation.

She aims to find new treatments for inflammatory bowel disease by focusing on how gamma delta T cell/epithelial interactions shape innate immune responses to pathogenic and commensal bacteria.

Dr. Edelblum gave a talk at Experimental Biology 2015 called, “Communication Between Tight Junction Proteins and Immune Cells During Enteric Disease“.
