Summary

Neural interactions between the alimentary tract and brain are essential to good health, but cancer patients often experience disrupted gastrointestinal (GI) function, reduced nutrition, and the symptoms of nausea and vomiting. My research focuses on determining the biological mechanisms that control gut-brain communication and contribute to nutritional homeostasis. Current interests include studies on the neurobiological mechanisms of nausea and vomiting. This research program has the long-term goal of developing novel therapies to decrease GI symptom burden and improve quality of life for cancer patients.
