Welcome to the Silverman Lab

Our lab is a part of both the Division of Infectious Diseases and Immunology in the Department of Medicine and the Program in Innate Immunity, an interdisciplinary and interdepartmental group of investigators, who are focused on discovering the underlying mechanisms that drive immune defenses and inflammation in both health and disease.

Our Research Focus: Innate immune recognition and signal transduction in flies and mammals

  • How bacteria, viruses and parasites are recognized by innate immune receptors
  • Molecular and biochemical mechanisms used by both the host and microbe to respond to infection
  • The role of peptidoglycan sensing in inflammatory responses and diseases
