We have been quite busy recently!
Our PhD candidate, Manoj Gurung, has just received the Carson College of Veterinary Medicine graduate student award. Congrats, Manoj!
We also have recently published two more papers:
- Gut-resident CX3CR1hi macrophages induce tertiary lymphoid structures and IgA response in situ.

We’re in the news! In a large metastudy, we have identified common microbiota (both at the genera and species level) that are associated with type 2 diabetes. The review paper, Role of gut microbiota in type 2 diabetes pathophysiology has combined the results of 42 separate studies and the findings have been summarized in an article written by New Atlas. Check out the New Atlas article here or the review paper here.
