CGIBD Research Seminar – “ The Role of the Apical Junctional Complex in Gut Health ” by Younggeon Jin, DVM, PhD

February 21, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

The Role of the Apical Junctional Complex in Gut Health  

Younggeon Jin, DVM, PhD
Postdoctoral Research Associate

“My long-term goal is to understand how the apical junctional complex, including tight and adherens junction, can be manipulated for therapeutic purposes in patients with digestive diseases. In my current research, I study the role of adherens junctions in regulation of intestinal epithelial permeability and differentiations in ClC-2 deficient mice. I also study mechanisms of action of the barrier protective   pharmaceutical agent larazotide in an anoxia-induced intestinal injury model.”
