Paneth Cell Secretion in vivo Requires Expression of Tmem16a and Tmem16f

The present data demonstrate the role of Tmem16 for exocytosis in Paneth cells. Inhibition or activation of Tmem16a/f is likely to affect microbial content and immune functions present in the small intestine.

Gastro Hep Advances is the newest peer-reviewed journal published by the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA), joining Gastroenterology, Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology (CGH), Cellular and Molecular Gastroenterology and Hepatology (CMGH), and Techniques and Innovations in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (TIGE). Gastro Hep Advances is a broad-scope, online-only, open access journal that publishes papers on basic, clinical and translational gastroenterology and hepatology. The open access model enables authors with funding mandates to have a high-quality home for their research.

In addition to full-length original research articles, the journal publishes comprehensive reviews as well as commentaries and editorials. A core objective is to publish papers cascaded from AGA’s other journals that represent outstanding science and therefore qualify for publication in a journal supported by the AGA brand. Gastro Hep Advances also strongly encourages the submission of manuscripts not originally submitted to the other AGA journals. Gastro Hep Advances is less concerned with novelty and subjective perceptions of significance; its aim is to publish digestive disease research that is technically, ethically, and scientifically sound.

Gastro Hep Advances will be published 8 times in 2023 with the number of issues increasing over time. Shortly after articles are accepted, they will be posted to the "Articles in Press" page of the journal's website. As a new journal, Gastro Hep Advances is not yet indexed in PubMed Central. At present, only federally funded research will be deposited into PubMed Central, which satisfies the National Institutes of Health access policy. Application and admission into PubMed Central - which would permit depositing of all accepted articles, regardless of funding status - is a major strategic goal of the journal and one we are diligently working towards. The journal's website will also support multimedia files and supplemental data including images, video and audio files. Gastro Hep Advances provides updates and commentary via Facebook and Twitter.

An Introductory Message from the Inaugural Co-Editors-in-Chief!

Vinod K Rustgi MD, MBA

Vinod K Rustgi MD, MBA
Distinguished Professor of Medicine
GI Fellowship Program Director
Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School

Vinod K Rustgi was born in Delhi, India but grew up in New Haven and Buffalo, NY. Always a history buff, he majored in History (as well as a science major) and graduated magna cum laude from Yale, followed by medical school at Johns Hopkins and residency at Georgetown. Subsequently, he received training as a Stanford GI Fellow (monoclonal antibody research with Dr Allen D Cooper) and the NIH where he was a Liver Diseases Fellow with Dr Jay Hoofnagle. All of these mentors had lasting influences on him and his choice of academic interests. Hepatitis C as well as Liver Transplantation were evolving fields and Dr Rustgi was fortunate enough to get involved early and learn from leading people developing those areas. What an exciting time in retrospect! Currently, he is Distinguished Professor of Medicine (Gastroenterology) and is also the GI Fellowship Program Director at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. He also holds Professorships in Epidemiology as well as Pathology.

He has three wonderful children, two in medicine and one in law. His oldest daughter is part of the Gastroenterology Faculty at Columbia. He is very proud of each of them and their spouses but most so of his almost 2-year-old grandson, Jamie.

Building anything is worthwhile and launching a new AGA Journal is an extremely exciting venture. This online journal will be publishing original research but will also try to incorporate subject areas and interdisciplinary work that deserves rapid dissemination.

Shanthi Srinivasan was born in New York, NY and did her early education in Delhi, India and subsequently graduated from Wayne State School of Medicine. She received her Internal Medicine training and gastroenterology training from the University of Michigan and subsequently at Washington University, St. Louis completing both her clinical training and research foundation during this time. Her mentorship and training at the University of Michigan and Washington University led her to current research passion of the changes in the enteric nervous system in the pathophysiology of gastrointestinal motility disorders. She was fortunate to be guided by leaders in the field including Dr. John Wiley and Dr. Robert Heuckeroth.

She has three wonderful children, two studying Economics and one about to start his undergraduate studies at Yale. She is proud of her children and they are her constant motivation to try new opportunities. Currently, she is the Bruce Logue Endowed Professor of Medicine in the Division of Digestive Disease at Emory University. She is also part of the Neuroscience graduate program at Emory.

Dr Rustgi and Dr Srinivasan hope to hear frequently and vigorously from the readership about how to make OUR society’s venture better and better. Please weigh in! Contact us at [email protected].
