Associate Professor

Our goal is to understand the processes that lead to development of chronic auto-inflammatory disorders of the gut, collectively known as Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD; Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis). Our work spans disciplines, integrating mucosal immunology, epithelial transport, and gut microbiota. We also strive to understand the mechanisms leading to impaired bone metabolism, which in patients with chronic IBD are responsible for decreased bone mineral density and increased risk of fractures.
