... Karen Edelblum, PhD, of the University of Chicago, IL, whose current study focuses on understanding the molecular interactions by which y8 intraepithelial lymphocytes and epithelial cells directly interact via occluding, and determine how these interactions affect disease initiation and progression in a celiac-like mouse model of disease.

 … Karen Edelblum, PhD, University of Chicago, IL, who received a 2011 AGA Research Scholar Award.

“During my postdoctoral research, I have developed live in vivo imaging techniques to visualize the migration of y8 intraepithelial lymphocytes (lELs) within the small intestine epithelium. The purpose of the current study is to understand the molecular interactions by which y8 IELs and epithelial cells directly interact via occluding, and determine how these interactions affect disease initiation and progression in a celiac-like mouse model of disease. I am proud to be a recipient of the research scholar award and would like to thank all of those who made AGA support of this project possible, as it will be invaluable as I begin my independent research program."
