A researcher from Saint Louis University School of Medicine received a roughly $1.9 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to study short bowel syndrome, the university said Oct. 8. 

The researcher, Ajay Jain, MD, is a professor of pediatrics, pharmacology and physiology and the associate division chief of pediatric gastroenterology at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital. 

Dr. Jain has found in novel studies that altered gut-derived signals play a big role in driving injury mechanisms in short bowel syndrome. 

This NIH grant will evaluate the impact of these signals to test their ability to minimize multisystem injury in short bowel syndrome.
