BIO

My research focuses on epithelial barrier function in the context of inflammatory bowel disease. Our lab is investigating novel signaling molecules that promote epithelial cell proliferation and migration or restitution of epithelial cell junctions. Our research is designed to better understand epithelial barrier dysfunction in IBD with the goal of identifying possible novel therapeutic strategies.
