Research in the Chapkin lab focuses on dietary/microbial modulators related to the prevention of cancer and chronic inflammatory diseases. The lab has been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for the past 29 years. Members of the lab have made highly significant contributions in cancer chemoprevention and inflammation biology with specific emphasis in: (i) elucidation of signal transduction processes in intestinal stem cells, (ii) membrane biology and nutritional modulation of organ membrane structure and function, (iii) investigation of the role of inflammation as a critical factor in cancer development, and its modulation by environmental/botanical agents, (iv) establishment of models for chronic inflammation and cancer prevention studies, and (v) development of novel noninvasive Systems Biology-based methodologies to assess crosstalk between the gut microbiome and the host transcriptome and its application to translational research.
