    Welcome to the Theiss Lab at the University of Colorado - Anschutz Medical Campus

    We are located in the Department of Medicine, Division of Gastroenterology & Hepatology.


    The overall goal of the Theiss Lab is to elucidate the role and mechanism whereby mitochondrial signaling pathways in intestinal epithelial cells contribute to gastrointestinal diseases, specifically inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), colitis-associated cancer, and colorectal tumorigenesis. Results from our studies aim to further our understanding of intestinal homeostasis originating at the organellar (mitochondria) level and to identify novel therapeutic targets with translational utility in patients with IBD, and who are at risk of developing colon cancer.









    Dr. Theiss is faculty in the following Graduate Programs: Cell Biology/Stem Cells/Development, Cancer Biology, and Microbiology.
