The mucosal epithelial barrier surface of the lungs and intestines is made up of a single-cell layer separating microbota from underlying tissues, which harbour many immune cells. The interaction between the immune cells, microbiota and the epithelial barrier is closely regulated, and one group of cells that plays an important role in this are innate lymphoid cells (ILCs). The aim of Jochem Bernink's research is to investigate how human ILCs contribute to maintaining mucosal homeostasis and initiating inflammatory responses. He also looks at the way these cells can contribute to immunopathology when proper regulation fails.
