Dr. Montrose's lab is focused on understanding and modulating host intrinsic and extrinsic factors in the GI tract to prevent and treat colorectal cancer (CRC) and  inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Projects include: 1) Disrupting tumor cell metabolism through targeting synthesis and exogenous availability of nutrients for CRC prevention and treatment; 2) Dietary and pharmacological approaches to alter the influence of gut luminal factors on intestinal tumor development; 3) Modulating immune cell metabolism to ameliorate IBD; 4) Understanding the pathogenesis of the gut injury response to enhance wound healing.
