The Xavier research group
The primary research goal of the Xavier Laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, is to discover and understand the function of important mediators and effectors involved in both the innate and adaptive immune systems. Of particular interest are the cellular components and regulatory networks that interact dynamically within temporal, spatial, and pathophysiological contexts of innate immunity. 1. Systems biology of innate and adaptive immunity 2. Functional mapping of pathways associated with Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and diabetes 3. Genetics of Crohn's disease, celiac disease and ulcerative colitis.
