Research Interests

Autoimmunity; and Bioengineering


Dr. Trapecar is an assistant professor of medicine and biomedical engineering in the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. After his postdoctoral training in immunology at Gladstone Institutes / UCSF and in bioengineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he joined JHU to investigate the fundamental origins of immunometabolic diseases. He and his team are utilizing human multiorgan microphysiological systems, tissue engineering, and systems biology to gain better understanding of how fundamental disruption in tissue-tissue and tissue-immune crosstalk leads to the early emergence of autoimmune and neurodegenerative disorders such as inflammatory bowel disease, autoimmune diseases of the liver and Parkinson’s disease. more
