I am interested in intestinal biology during states of health, inflammatory disorders such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and colon cancer. Through research, I seek to understand and modulate disease-relevant cell signaling pathways. The goal of my research is to integrate classical cell and molecular biology approaches with patient genetic information to improve patient care and outcomes.
