Digestive Physiology and Nutrition Laboratory
The digestive physiology and nutrition laboratory concentrates on digestive physiology and nutrition, and on animal models of digestive diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease.
Our research at a glimpse
- Bowel dysfunction in Multiple Sclerosis
- Novel heteromeric receptors in gut control: ghrelin receptors and dopamine receptors working together
- High fat diets, gut health and diabetes
- Neuro-immune interactions: nerve pathways controlling inflammation in the intestine
- Nutrition: The control of gut hormone release by nutrients
- Gut Health: an intersection of food, environment, animal production and global health
- The gastrointestinal complications of Parkinson’s Disease
- Novel drugs and receptors for targeting neural control of digestive function
- Modulation of intestinal inflammation through nerve stimulation
- The taxonomy of enteroendocrine cells and their innervation
