Research Interests
Innate and adaptive immune functions play a major role in susceptibility to and outcome of infectious diseases, autoimmunity and cancer. My laboratory is devoted to the molecular basis of disease-related immune processes in two areas. Microbial-immune homeostasis and molecular immune imaging in the intestine Normal intestinal physiology requires peaceful cohabitation of abundant colonic bacteria with the epithelial and immune components of the intestinal mucosa. This tripartite homeostasis is a fundamental feature of mucosal biology, and an outstanding example of microbial and animal coevolution, but its mechanisms are poorly understood. Our goals are to understand the cellular and molecular basis of bacterial-immune homeostasis in the gut, and how these insights can explain the pathogenesis and guide the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease. Our present work focuses on three areas. First, using host genetics, high-throughput microbial and biochemical analysis, and bioinformatics, we are seeking to redefine the mucosal ecology of host-commensal microbial interaction in mucosal health, inflammatory bowel disease, and local and systemic cancer. Second, using genetic and cell biology approaches, we are determining the identity and function of lymphocytes which regulate mucosal inflammation. These studies presently focus on the unanticipated role of human NK cells and their genetically programmed state (licensing) in the mucosal compartment. Third, we are developing PET-based molecular imaging tools to characterize intestinal immune function in living subjects, with the goal of creating useful approaches for clinical immune monitoring in disease and therapeutic assessment in situ.

Jonathan Braun, M.D., Ph.D., is Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, and Molecular and Medical Pharmacology, at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. He is the Chair of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and co-Director of Tumor Immunology at the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center. A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Dr. Braun was raised in Los Angeles, where he studied violin in the community and modern western history in the public schools. An undergraduate at Stanford University, he received his bachelor of science in chemistry and biology in 1975. He pursued medical studies and doctoral research at Harvard Medical School and in the laboratory of Emil Unanue; he received his M.D.-PhD. in 1981. After residency in Pathology at Brigham and Women's Hospital, and a postdoctoral fellowship with David Baltimore at the Whitehead Institute, he joined the faculty at the UCLA School of Medicine in 1985. His recent organizational leadership service includes Chairman of the National Scientific Advisory Board of the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation, President of the Clinical Immunology Society, and President of the Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies (FOCIS); he presently serves on the editorial boards of Gastroenterology, Inflammatory Bowel Diseases and Clinical Immunology. At UCLA, he directs the clinical programs in Pathology and Laboratory Medicine of UCLA Healthcare, and was a recent Director of the UCLA Clinical Translational Science Institute.
