Research line: 
Genetics of human gastrointestinal (GI) disease. Dr. D'Amato's research group applies computational approaches to identify causative DNA variants, and the mechanisms by which they affect risk of inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and other GI conditions. They also investigate how the host genes influence gut microbiota composition in humans, and the dysregulation of host-microbiome interactions in GI disease. The ultimate goal of these studies is a translational application for improved therapeutic precision in gastroenterology.
