  • Research in our group focuses on understanding the role that bile acids and steroid hormones play in disease pathogenesis. In particular, we are interested in how steroid hormone and bile acid metabolism is altered in metabolic disease, and the impact that this has on gastrointestinal health.

    We combine fundamental and translational research, using in vitro, in vivo, and human studies, to understand disease at the molecular and physiological level.
