About the Luo Lab

The research interests in the Luo Laboratory are immunological, microbial, and nutritional regulation of autoimmunity and immunodeficiency. We focus on how commensal bacteria in the gut affect the host immune system, and vice versa. We utilize murine models and human patient samples to study various diseases including systemic lupus erythematosus.
