Research Projects Highlight

Dr. Taylor’s research interests are centered on immunology, specifically the immune responses and tissues in the mucosal layers of the intestine.  Recent projects have included the characterization and analysis of microscopic lymphoid tissues called cryptopatches and isolated lymphoid follicles in the small intestine of wild animals, including field mice (Peromyscus sp.) and fish (C. commersonii).  These tissues have been shown to form and change dramatically in response to diet and inflammation in laboratory animals, but little is known about cryptopatches and isolated lymphoid follicles in wild vertebrates.  Dr. Taylor mentors undergraduate and graduate students who have an interest in learning advanced biological techniques such as small mammal trapping and handling, dissection and cryopreservation, tissue sectioning, histochemical staining, and immunofluorescence microscopy to complete research projects in this area.
