The Sharkey Lab is in the news again! Click here to see why.

Welcome to the home page of Dr. Keith Sharkey and his laboratory in the Department of Physiology & Pharmacology at the University of Calgary.

My laboratory studies the nervous system of the gastrointestinal tract in health and disease. Our major focus is the role of nerves in intestinal inflammation. This research is applicable to the important conditions of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Our other focuses include the intrinsic primary afferent neurons and enteroendocrine cells in inflammatory bowel disease, the role of cannabinoids in the control of emesis, and the neurobiology of obesity.

More than just a gut feeling?
