Rothchild Lab

Investigating alveolar macrophages and their roles as innate sentinels at the airway-tissue interface during respiratory infection.

Welcome! We study mechanisms of innate immunity and inflammatory regulation in the lung combining immunology, microbiology, and systems biology approaches. We focus our studies on alveolar macrophages, the immune cell that resides within alveoli at the airway-tissue interface, and their response to Mycobacterium tuberculosis.


September 2021: We’re excited to have two new undergraduate students joining the lab. Welcome Brenda and Sydney!
