Gastrointestinal Motility Research

Science research is accomplished by dynamic teams of people working collaboratively toward a common goal. Members of the team have specific roles and responsibilities. Undergraduate research is rewarding, and can positively influence undergraduate education by providing a hands-on experience for students. This session will present work performed by a research team in my laboratory that focuses on the development of a new zebrafish-based model system for human gastrointestinal motility. Students will present individual objectives and results, and will explain how their project relates to the overall laboratory goals. Gastrointestinal physiology in health and in disease will be summarized, and the potential for the zebrafish model system to identify novel drug targets will be explained.
