Researcher | Research Overview
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.
Specific projects include:
- The role of hydrogen peroxide in epithelial cell pattern recognition receptor signaling
- Developing therapies for Microvillus Inclusion Disease
- The role of TTC7A in epithelial lumen formation
