NLRP6 inflammasome plays vital roles in host defense at the intestinal epithelium and in maintaining the gut microbiota ecosystem. Tianmin Fu, an Instructor in Hao Wu's laboratory will employ multi-disciplinary biochemical and biophysical methods to understand the molecular mechanism of the NLRP6 inflammasome assembly and activation. This study could contribute to the understanding and treatment of many digestive diseases such as inflammatory bowel diseases and colorectal cancer.
