Research in the Gastrointestinal Genetics Lab is geared toward a translational application for therapeutic precision in gastroenterology. Our international team combines leading expertise in genomic, computational and pre-clinical research to identify causative genes and pathogenetic mechanisms predisposing to human diseases of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. We focus on irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and gut dysmotility, microscopic colitis (MC), inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), gastroparesis (Gp) and other GI conditions. Nutrigenetics and diet-genome-metagenome interactions are also at the core of our research, in IBS and carbohydrate malabsorption.
