Research overview

My laboratory studies the inter- and intra-cellular signaling events required for maintaining the structure and function of intestinal epithelium, with a focus on those events involved in epithelial cell proliferation and death.

We are also trying to understand the molecular mechanisms of transcription factor regulation by chemical and physical injury.
