Lin Chang, M.D.

Lin Chang is a Professor of Medicine in the Division of Digestive Diseases and Department of Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. She is the Co-Director of the Center for Neurobiology of Stress at UCLA, and Associate Director of the UCLA General Clinical Research Center (GCRC). Dr. Chang’s main area of research is the pathophysiology of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), with particular interest in the overlap of IBS with fibromyalgia, gender differences, and neuroendocrine alterations. She is principal investigator on two NIH grants studying the central and peripheral mechanisms underlying IBS.
In 2002, Dr. Chang received the Janssen Award in Gastroenterology for Basic or Clinical Research. She is a member of the American Gastroenterological Association, the American College of Gastroenterology, and the Society for Neuroscience. She is currently serving as a Clinical Councilor of the AGA Neurogastroenterology and Motility Section. Dr. Chang has multiple publications in peer-reviewed journals and textbooks. She has given numerous lectures at national and local meetings.

Jennifer Labus, Ph.D.

Dr. Labus is an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences at the University of California, Los Angeles, where she is head of the Connectivity and Computational Statistics Division at the Center for Neurobiology of Stress. Dr. Labus’s research focuses on mapping the neural networks underlying stress neurobiology with specific emphasis on models of visceral and functional pain and brain-body interactions. Specifically, she is examining altered central and autonomic nervous system processes in functional pain disorders, stress neurobiology, and the statistical methodology applied to interpret the complex data yielded by psychophysiological assessments such as fMRI, PET, acoustic startle response, and heart-rate variability. Dr. Labus recently received a K08 award from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) to delineate the neural networks involved in visceral pain and GI function using network analysis. Her research investigates sex-specific differences in the effective connectivity of emotional-arousal circuitry.

Muriel Larauche, Ph.D.

Muriel Larauche is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Neurobiology of Stress. She is presently the recipient of a NIDDK Gastroenterology Training Grant. Her primary research focuses on the development of animal models of visceral pain with a specific interest in stress-induced visceral hyperalgesia and its modulation by sexual hormones. She is the author of several articles and abstracts presented at different national and international meetings. She was the recipient of the Nestle Guigoz Award in 2001 and has obtained seed fundings for her research from both the CNS pilot and feasibility program and the Iris Cantor-Women’s Health Center at UCLA from 2006 to 2007.
