Pregraduate research: Neuroendocrinology of appetite regulation, Department of Pharmacology, University of Cambridge, UK
Development of animal models for patients with a compromised digestive function.
In a more basic science aspect I am particular interested in the enteroendocrine system, the localization of the individual populations of enteroendocrine cells and their paracrine effects. My main focus is on L-cells and particularly the role of Glucagon-like peptide 2 for intestinal growth in the neonatal gut.
