The Limketkai Lab is a clinical/translational research laboratory whose mission is the generation, experimentation, and application of knowledge that can help shape and improve future care of our patients. Our key research themes -- individually and in combination -- include the domains of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), nutrition and biomedical innovation.
Our core team comprises a group of faculty, gastroenterology fellows, medical residents, medical students, graduate students, undergraduate students, and dietitians at UCLA and elsewhere working on diverse yet related research projects focused on our research themes. We are a part of the UCLA Center for Inflammatory Bowel Diseases and work closely with different departments at UCLA. We also have a multi-institution network of national and international collaborators who share in our effort to advance science in IBD and nutrition.
