The Moltke Lab studies the cells, molecules, and signaling pathways underlying immune responses to parasitic worms and allergens (a.k.a. type 2 immunity). Right now we are particularly interested in a specialized epithelial lineage called tuft cells, which we think holds the key to important advances in our understanding of type 2 immunity.

The Moltke Lab is part of the Immunology Department at the University of Washington. Come visit us in Building E of the South Lake Union Medical School Campus.
