Clinical/Research Interests

My overall research program is concerned with the central and peripheral nervous regulation of gastro-intestinal functions and immune responses. Current research topics with which I am involved include: - Submandibular gland - derived anti-inflammatory peptides. - Cannabinoids and the regulation of emesis and gastro-intestinal motility. - Brain-gut interactions. - Neurogenic and immune factors in pancreatitis.
