CGIBD Research Seminar – “ Does Gastrin Signaling limit the ability of PPIs to prevent Esophageal Cancer? ” by Katherine S. Garman, MD, MHS
February 7, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
“ Does Gastrin Signaling limit the ability of PPIs to prevent Esophageal Cancer? ”
Katherine S. Garman, MD, MHS
Associate Professor of Medicine
Division of Gastroenterology
Member of the Molecular and Physiology Institute
Practicing Gastroenterologist at the Durham VA
The Garman lab is focused on mechanisms of esophageal repair and the pathogenesis of Barrett’s metaplasia and esophageal cancer. We work closely with collaborators at NCSU as part of CGIBD’s large animal core and we have developed porcine models or esophageal repair. The porcine models are particularly important to our work as pig esophagus is similar to human due to the presence of esophageal submucosal glands (ESMGs). Much of our work focuses on the role of ESMGs as a protected stem and progenitor cell source in the esophagus. We also use 3D culture models of ESMGs. One our active projects focuses on the effects of gastrin signaling in esophageal repair, metaplasia and carcinogenesis.
