Carolina Arancibia

Research Fellow
Nuffield Department of Medicine

College position:

Dr. Carolina Arancibia is an immunologist and the Translational Research Lead in the Translational Gastroenterology Unit. The central issue in intestinal immunology is how an individual is able to maintain tolerance to commensal bacteria and food antigens yet at the same time, develop strong immune responses to invading pathogens. The Unit's research focuses on dissecting the immunological pathways that lead to inflammatory bowel disease. In particular, Arancibia is interested in characterizing a specialized subset of cells in the gut and how they might change under the disease environment.
