Center for Epithelial DisordersPrincipal Investigator:
Mark Donowitz, M.D.
The Johns Hopkins Center for Epithelial Disorders focuses on research into the physiology and p...athophysiology of epithelial cells (cells that line the cavities and interior surfaces of the body) of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, liver, pancreas and kidney. Specifically, the center’s research seeks to:Research Areas: gastroenterology, epithelial cells
-Understand the mechanisms regulating the activity of transport proteins (including channels) of epithelial cells
Characterize the mechanisms by which polarity of epithelial cells are maintained
-Investigate the mechanisms controlling transcription of epithelial-specific genes
Understand the pathophysiological basis of GI and renal diseases that involve the preceding three components
-The center also provides a framework for training fellows in gastroenterology and hepatology to become independent investigators.
The center is funded primarily through individual investigator-initiated extramural research grant support from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as well as multi-investigator grants including RO1, PO1, UO1 and R24. view more
