Research in the lab aims to understand how the intestinal epithelium senses and interacts with its surroundings and how epithelial membrane channels and transporters contribute to immune function, host-microbial symbiosis, and cellular metabolism. Research projects in the lab use a variety of approaches and span several aspects of intestinal physiology and disease, including both basic science and translational research.
