Maxime M. Mahe, PhD
Instructor, University of Cincinnati Department of Pediatrics
"Translating Intestinal Stem Cell Biology to Human Disease”
Prior to joining Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Dr. Mahe performed his PhD research at the National Institute of Health and Medical Research in the Division of Neuropathies of the Enteric Nervous System and Digestive Diseases, in Nantes, France. His work emphasizes on understanding interactions between the enteric nervous system and intestinal epithelial cells.
In 2012, Dr. Mahe moved to Cincinnati Children's to focus on the study of intestinal stem cells in the laboratory of Dr. Michael Helmrath. Since, he has been involved in collaborative studies aiming at understanding stem cell fate and gastrointestinal epithelial biology including the generation of functional human small intestine.
Since 2015, Dr. Mahe is an instructor in the Division of Pediatric General and Thoracic Surgery at Cincinnati Children's within the UC Department of Pediatrics.
His research goals are to study human enteric nervous system regulation of intestinal growth and its impact on gastrointestinal dysfunctions.
