NIH Grant Awarded to Advance Research on Vitamin D Treatment for IBD
Researchers at Loma Linda University Health have been awarded a grant to investigate if vitamin D could be used to help repair the intestine of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases of the National Institutes of Health will grant $433,340 for two years to the lab of Xiaolei Tang, PhD, professor at Loma Linda University School of Medicine, to pursue the research project titled “Targeting Intestinal Stem Cells to Augment the Repair of Epithelial Barrier. “I am very excited that our idea is supported by the experts in our field,” Tang said in a university feature story by Ansel Oliver. “I hope that this study will eventually benefit patients at Loma Linda University Health and around the world.”
