The Heuckeroth Lab has excellent resources and many projects to pursue focused on developmental biology, genetics, stem cell biology, gene-environment interactions and the molecular mechanisms of human intestinal motility disorders. The research team also is interested in pursuing collaborative projects in bioengineering, nanotechnology, bioinformatics, epidemiology, imaging and other fields that might provide new approaches to care and prevention for people with intestinal motility disorders.

If you have an idea and want to explore collaboration, please contact Dr. Heuckeroth.

Robert O. Heuckeroth, MD, PhD

Research Director, Suzi and Scott Lustgarten Center for GI Motility

Dr. Heuckeroth investigates mechanisms controlling bowel motility in order to find new ways to treat, diagnose, and prevent intestinal motility disorders. His research is focused on enteric nervous system and smooth muscle biology as he works to find new ways to improve the lives of children with bowel motility disorders.
