UF’s Cutting Edge Research
The Jobin Laboratory is interested in bacteria/host interactions and ensuring innate/immunological responses during health and diseases.
The laboratory focuses on the identification of the molecular mechanisms by which commensal bacteria regulate wound healing responses of intestinal stem cells.
The goal of the Zhou laboratory is to determine the transcriptional regulation of mucosal immune responses and host-microbiome interactions.
Dr. Ellen Zimmermann’s lab focuses on not only the molecular advances in IBD but also the social aspects that come along with the disease.
The UF Health IBD Program needs your financial support to continue and expand our mission of IBD patient care, research and education. Contributions are tax deductible and can be designated for specific projects, purchase of research equipment, support of research personnel or the establishment of endowed professorships.
