Helen Raybould
Distinguished Professor

Dr. Raybould captains this great mad ship. 

She is also a GI neurophysiologist with a particular interest in the role of innervation of the GI tract by primary vagal afferent neurons in GI physiology and food intake.  The lab's research explores how the phenotype of these neurons change in obesity and metabolic disease as well as the influence of gut microbiota on GI physiology, including gut epithelium and intestinal barrier function and on plasticity in vagal afferent neurons
