Research Description: 

As an Assistant Professor in the Division of GI at UCSF, I am interested in the molecular underpinnings of intestinal inflammation and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). We employ a variety of tools to study intestinal epithelial cells and death signaling pathways in mouse models, patient-derived biopsies, and organoids.

Primary Thematic Area: 
Secondary Thematic Area: 
Tissue / Organ Biology & Endocrinology
Research Summary: 
The Kattah Lab studies how intestinal epithelial cells contribute to IBD using mouse models, patient biopsies, and organoids. The ultimate goal is to develop precision treatments for patients.


Featured Publications:
