    My lab studies fundamental immune and epithelial drivers of tissue remodeling & regeneration in the gut with a focus on discovering new ways to treat inflammatory disease like ulcerative colitis & Crohn's disease.

    Using large-scale transcriptomic datasets paired with organoid experiments and in vivo analysis, our studies address how immune signals in the intestinal tract interact with stem and crypt base secretory cells (e.g., deep crypt secretory cells) to promote intestinal health and the response to disease.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
