My main research project investigates the role of the selenium containing protein, Selenoprotein P, in intestinal homeostasis, injury, and inflammation. I also have worked to establish 3D intestinal organoid cultures from a variety of mouse models as well as human colorectal cancer patients, which I now use to determine how various proteins affect intestinal stem cell regulation and CRC tumor growth.
