Gretchen Diehl, PhD
Immunologist at Sloan Kettering Institute
Dr. Gretchen Diehl's research focuses on the intestinal immune system. The intestinal immune system faces a number of unique challenges due to continuous exposure to rapidly changing factors including diet and intestinal microbes. Proper calibration of responses is needed to clear invading pathogens as well as repair damage. Dr. Diehl's lab finds that the intestinal microbiota and dietary factors can promote or inhibit proper immune regulation. As such, they seek to define molecular and cellular pathways regulated by the microbiota, dietary, and tissue factors that are required to maintain homeostasis within the intestine.
