GI Developmental Biology Research

A great deal remains to be learned about the biology of intestinal development. Using in vitro cell culture models and animal models of disease, investigators are examining how the gastrointestinal tract develops normally and how gastrointestinal diseases develop and evolve at the molecular level.  Studies are providing insight into intestinal epithelial biology and mechanisms controlling the development of the enteric nervous system, which directly controls the gastrointestinal system.
