Use scRNA-seq technology to better understand adaptation after small bowel resection; engineer intestinal organoids to undergo regional reprogramming in vitro for use in high throughput studies, regenerative treatments, and potential modeling of short bowel syndrome.

1. Gain better understanding of the effects of the adaptation process after small bowel resection (SBR) on a molecular level and investigate potential upstream effectors of molecular change using scRNA-seq.
2. Use direct reprogramming to induce regional reprogramming in distal organoids for use in modeling adaptation after SBR in vitro.
