    Collapse overview


    Dr. Irazoqui received his BS from the National University of Rosario, Argentina. He received his PhD in Cell and Molecular Biology from Duke University in 2003. He pursued his postdoctoral research in host-pathogen interactions with Fred Ausubel in the Department of Molecular Biology of the Massachusetts General Hospital and the Department of Genetics of Harvard Medical School. Dr. Irazoqui led his independent laboratory first in the Department of Pediatrics and then in the Center for the Study of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (CSIBD), both at MGH. He lectured at Harvard and Harvard Medical School. In August 2016 Dr. Irazoqui's laboratory relocated to the Department of Microbiology and Physiological Systems of the University of Massachusetts Medical School. His research focuses on dissecting mechanisms of host-microbe interactions in health and disease, with special emphasis on neural control of epithelial integrity. His research is supported by the National Institutes of Health and by the National Science Foundation. Dr. Irazoqui actively promotes equal opportunity for underprivileged individuals in STEM careers.
