Summary
Our group is working on neuro-immune and endocrine mechanisms that contribute to the development of inflammatory bowel diseases. Our research program aims to elucidate the role of chromogranin-derived peptides, the autonomic nervous system, and central disorders during gastrointestinal inflammation development and to elucidate the precise mechanisms involved. This may lead to identifying new specific agents that will open new therapeutic avenues for treating ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.
