AGA, General Mills announce grant to uncover role between intestinal bacteria and health and disease
Date:12/20/2010

The American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) Foundation for Digestive Health and Nutrition (FDHN) announced that Anisa Shaker, MD, is the recipient of the AGA-General Mills Bell Institute of Health and Nutrition Research Scholar Award in Gut Physiology and Health.

LaRusso, MD, AGAF, chair of the AGA Foundation. "The AGA Foundation is grateful for the support shown by the General Mills Bell Institute of Health and Nutrition in funding research that will help gastroenterologists continue to better understand and manage digestive health."

"This award will allow me to continue to cultivate and expand growing research interests that align with my clinical interest in inflammatory disorders and malignancies of the luminal GI tract. This generous funding will also provide me with protected time necessary for continued focused research, afford me the opportunity to continue to generate meaningful data and ultimately, to be a competitive candidate for independent federal grant support," said Dr. Shaker.

An assistant professor of medicine at Washington University School of Medicine, Dr. Shaker will focus her research on investigating epimorphin (Epim -/-) mice microbiota in colitis and colitis-associated cancer to understand gut microbial ecology during homeostasis and disease, delineate factors that modulate the intestinal microbiota, and uncover potential therapies to establish a luminal environment protective against colitis and colitis-associated cancer. (Mice that lack the protein Epim -/- are protected from the development of colitis and colitis-a
