inflammatory diseases

Research Description

Robert Saxton is an assistant professor of Immunology and Molecular Medicine and Chemistry.  The Saxton lab studies the mechanisms of cell communication that control tissue inflammation, repair, and homeostasis, with the goal of developing novel therapeutics to modulate these pathways in disease.  Their multidisciplinary research program uses a range of biochemical and structural biology techniques, together with cutting edge approaches in protein engineering, receptor pharmacology, and mouse models of inflammation in order to understand and control inflammatory signaling at the atomic, cellular, and organismal levels.
