Biographical Info

I work as part of a team of scientists investigating host-microbe interactions in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and colorectal cancer.  We study the role of the intestinal epithelium in these diseases, specifically how intestinal epithelial cells participate in inflammatory responses to gastrointestinal stressors.  Our focus is on the proteins Hsp70 and HMGB1 which are increased in expression during intestinal inflammation and play vital roles in intestinal epithelial cell survival and mucosal healing.
