Matthew Sweet

Professor Matt Sweet studies several families of pattern recognition receptors such as the Toll-like Receptors and Nod-like Receptors used by the body’s innate immune system to sense and respond to danger in the form of infection, cell damage and/or dysregulated metabolism.

He is researching their roles in regulating antimicrobial responses against bacterial pathogens and in driving inflammatory responses.
