Research Impacts

In order to determine how our immune system maintains health homeostasis, it is essential to fully understand the underlying biological mechanisms that regulate immune responses. Dr Sehgal's research combines exploratory discovery-based research and translational research to understand triggers, disease progression, and both intestinal and extraintestinal maifestations of gastrointestinal disorders such as Coeliac Disease and Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Using this approach, he aims to understand the interlinked networks that regulate immune responses during disease.
