Research Overview:

Macrophages in Intestinal stem cell regeneration.

Intestinal epithelial homeostasis depends upon the signaling crosstalk between the crypt intestinal stem cells (ISC) and the surrounding niche including the intestinal subepithelial myofibroblasts, endothelial cells and the macrophages. Our studies in radiation injury model have indicated that macrophages plays a pivotal role in intestinal regeneration.We are using novel mouse genetic and virus based tools to determine macrophage derived regenerative signals and their role in ISC self renewal and proliferation. Identification of macrophage derived regenerative signals will allow  us to develop novel therapeutic approaches against intstinal injury.

Collexis Research Profiles
Einstein Research Profiles (ERP) is one of the innovative technologies to create collaborative bridges within and across the entire bench-to-bedside-to-population spectrum of research. The ERP website has been developed in partnership with Collexis to give investigators easy access to PubMed publications, coauthor networks, information about NIH grants, and research networks.
