Written by Sharon Salt, Editor

Subhash Kulkarni is an Assistant Professor in Medicine at the Center of Neurogastroenterology at Johns Hopkins University (MD, USA). His lab studies the pathways by which the enteric nervous system (ENS) develops and is maintained in adults. Subhash is also interested in what kind of disorders and cellular mechanisms are associated with the development of different diseases that affect not only gut function but also CNS function. In this interview, Subhash speaks to us about the mini-symposium he co-chaired at SfN Neuroscience (3–7 November 2018, San Diego, CA, USA) on the advances in enteric neurobiology.
