The Eliceiri lab uses state of the art analytical and genetic technologies for the analysis of immune cells that mediate the resolution of the inflammation response. The
neural regulation of immune cells is a mechanism that bridges inputs from the brain with the inflammation response-a resolution mechanism that is dysfunctional in the cancer and following severe injury. With similarities to the neuronal synapse, the
exosome regulation of immune cells is a mechanism that releases inflammatory factors from epithelial cells and macrophages into the circulation that act upon distal immune cells.
