Dr. Matthew Sorbara Awarded Funding from Crohn's and Colitis Canada
An imbalance of gut bacteria is a contributor to IBD-related inflammation. Specifically, the Sorbara Lab will look at one family of bacteria and the fatty acids it creates that are abundant in a healthy gut but lower in IBD patients. The aim is to determine how this family of bacteria is linked to immune responses including live studies on mice. The ultimate goal is to continue on the path of developing treatments based on biological products that contain live organisms, such as bacteria..
