Our research focuses on structure and regulation of the intestinal epithelial barrier in healthy gut and mechanisms that drive barrier disruption during mucosal inflammation. Specifically, we are investigating the interplay between epithelial apical junctions and different cytoskeletal structures in barrier assembly and functions in the normal gut and elucidating how altered organization and dynamics of epithelial junctions and the cytoskeleton regulate gut barrier disruption and restitution in the inflamed intestinal mucosa.
