Director of the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Unit

We study the microbiome in inflammatory bowel diseases in humans and in-vitro models in order to characterize the enteric bacteria as predictors of disease activity and response to therapy. We further study the role of bacterial proteases in the pathogenesis of IBD and how to optimize dietary modifications and fecal microbial transfer as therapeutic interventions.
