Welcome to the Fitzgerald Lab

Our lab is a part of both the Division of Infectious Diseases and Immunology in the Department of Medicine and the Program in Innate Immunity, an interdisciplinary and interdepartmental group of investigators, who are focused on discovering the underlying mechanisms that drive immune defenses and inflammation in both health and disease.

Our Research Focus: Understanding molecular mechanisms controlling inflammatory response

  • Sensing and signaling in innate immunity (TLRs, Inflammasomes, cGAS/STING)
  • Autoinflammatory diseases (e.g., SAVI - STING associated Vasculopathy with onset in Infancy)
  • Therapeutic targeting of Inflammasomes and cGAS/STING Signaling
