Research

Our group has been involved in elucidating ion transport mechanisms (Na+, Cl– and SCFA) in the human intestine with special emphasis on understanding mechanisms underlying pathophysiology of infectious or inflammatory diarrhea.  We have also been involved in developing better therapeutic modalities for the treatment of diarrheal disorders.  We have recently identified several proabsorptive molecules which upregulate intestinal chloride absorption e.g. lysophosphatidic acid, all-trans retinoic acid, neuropeptide Y and bioactive factors secreted by probiotics.  In addition, we have strong interest in inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) as it pertains to amelioration of inflammation by probiotics or GLP1 or VIP packaged as nano-medicine utilizing mouse models of colitis. We have all of the tools and techniques established to assess molecular mechanisms underlying diarrheal diseases and gut inflammation utilizing cell culture models, organoids and in-vivo models.

INSTRUCTIONS: In order to add a sidebar anchor:

  1. Duplicate the existing item, listed as a 1/6 text field. (Or create a 1/6 column and add a text field, modify the class so it’s exactly “additionalAnchor”).
  2. Modify the text field inside the 1/6 column. Inside there, modify the HYPERLINK so that it would go to a corresponding section with a “#” in front of it. (Example, we have a “chief” section on the page, then it would make sense to have the hyperlink go to “#chief”)
  3. Then change the hyperlink TEXT to a appropriate label.
  4. IMPORTANT: If not done already, go into that CONTAINER that corresponds to your anchor (i.e. Meet The Chiefs), and add an ID matching the anchor’s HYPERLINK WITHOUT the “#”, i.e. “chief”.
  5. (If using side bar widget box, then there’s a saved copy of a widget box COLUMN, grab it in the column library, it should 1/6 of a length of a column.)

NOTE: Order added to the sidebar is from last to first.
