To be able to contribute to making the world even a bit smarter is a pretty neat thing!

My research is focused on the interaction between the gut microbiota and gut and pancreatic hormones and how signals from the microbiota interact with endocrine cells to regulate host metabolism. By using genetically modified animals I explore critical pathways in which the host responds to factors coming from the microbiota. In this work we have found novel functions of the hormone GLP-1 in regulating intestinal function in response to microbial metabolites. I am also exploring the link between microbiota and pancreatic beta cell function in modulating diabetes progression.
