In the field of gastrointestinal motility, the research focuses on visceral sensitivity disorders, the gut-brain axis and intestinal allergies. This includes the search for new therapeutic methods and diagnosis of this type of disorder, including irritable bowel syndrome, which accounts for about half of digestive system consultations.

Research into inflammation also covers the physiology and treatment of pancreatic disorders, acute inflammation or chronic pancreatitis, and cancer. The group includes an inter-department research programme surrounding the role of intestinal microflora in inflammation and bowel function.
