Xaiomin Yao

Xiaomin obtained his PhD in Institut Pasteur of Shanghai, Chinese Academy of Sciences. For his PhD thesis, he mainly studied how a hyperactive NLRP3 inflammasome in the intestine, through its interaction with local microbiota, could maintain intestinal homeostasis and provide host resistance to DSS induced colitis. He's primarily interested in unveiling the mechanisms behind the host and microbiome interaction. He joined the Cadwell lab as a postdoc in March 2018.
