Research Interests

My research focuses on glycobiology of human milk, with emphasis on functional interactions with intestinal mucosa, including control of glycan ontogeny in gut development and function. Developing and validating instrumental methods of analysis and biological models of mucosal signaling have allowed the following five significant research contributions:
Human milk glycans inhibit pathogens.  An essential step for most enteropathogens is to bind to their target receptor in...
