Silverman Laboratory Team
The Silverman laboratory utilizes genetic and gnotobiotic models to investigate how the early-life microbiome shapes the immune system. We are a diverse team of highly motivated people dedicated to applying advanced microbiological and immunological techniques to investigate interactions of the microbiome, MHC immunogenetics, immune system development, and autoimmunity. We believe in collaborative science and are committed to maintaining a fun, vibrant, and productive environment.
Dr. Silverman studies the fundamental aspects of early-life commensal microbes that influence immune system development and function. He discovered that the MHC-II E molecule prevents type 1 diabetes by shaping the intestinal microbiota early in life.
