Thanks from the MacNaughton Lab

After over 35 years of research at the University of Ottawa, the Canadian Department of National Defence and including the past 28 years at the University of Calgary, the MacNaughton Lab has closed its doors, and Wally has retired.  We had a fabulous career with research focused on the role of the intestinal epithelium in health and disease. The epithelium forms a critical barrier and gateway between the external environment and our bodies, and we studied how the epithelium plays a central role in inflammatory diseases of the gut, particularly Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
