Sensing the intestinal environment

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.
