Grupo de investigación de alto rendimiento en Fisiopatología y Farmacología del sistema digestivo de la Universidad Rey Juan Carlos / Research group in Physiopathology and Pharmacology of the digestive system at Universidad Rey Juan Carlos
Presentación
  • DESCRIPTION AND AIMS:
    - The main aim of NeuGut is to characterize the physio-histo-pathological alterations of the gastrointestinal tract and the brain-gut axis in animal models of disease or after drug treatments, and evaluate new strategies (pharmacological, nutritional) in order to normalize those alterations. Among others, the group applies techniques to analyze gastrointestinal motility, both in vivo and in vitro, that are not available altogether in any other lab of the world.
    - Besides, the group performs cell culture and tissue engineering studies, as well as evaluations of visceral, reproductive and neurologic toxicity of different compounds (environmental, therapeutic drugs, drugs of abuse, new materials, etc).

    LINES OF RESEARCH:
    - Physiopathology and histo-pathology of the digestive system and the brain-gut axis
    - New pharmacological and nutritional strategies for prevention and treatment of gastrointestinal diseases and disorders
    - Side effects of drug treatments on the digestive tract and the brain-gut axis
    - Visceral, reproductive and neurologic toxicity of different compounds (environmental, therapeutic drugs, drugs of abuse, new materials, etc)
    - Tissue engineering
    - Cell physiopathology
