Our research focuses on the immunobiology of inflammation in the gut-liver axis, with a multidisciplinary approach aimed at understanding the role of bacterial translocation and the interaction between the microbiome and the Immune System in the context of advanced chronic liver disease and in inflammatory bowel disease.
Hepatic and Intestinal Immunobiology Group
Multidisciplinary group focused on translational biomedical research in liver and digestive diseases (Imhilab).
Inflammation and gut-liver axis
Excellence Research Group
Our laboratory is located in the Department of Clinical Medicine of Miguel Hernández University (UMH) School of Medicine. The Group belongs to UMH Consolidated Research Groups, and it is also integrated in the Institute for Health Research at University Hospital of Alicante (ISABIAL); the Institute for Research, Development and Innovation in Health Biotechnology (IDIBE); and the CIBER of Hepatic and Digestive Diseases (CIBERehd) of the Institute of Health Carlos III.
The Group is committed to good practices in both clinical and translational research, complying with current research legislation for studies in humans and in experimental models. To ensure this, clinical and translational researchers with a long track research experience work along with novel investigators who are building up their careers with us.
