Connecting the Research Community

The SPARC Consortium’s complementary expertise and highly interactive nature allows us to tackle the neuroanatomy and implications of nerve stimulation on specific colonic functions, thereby identifying neural circuits that can influence gut diseases.

I appreciate this secure, well-maintained portal with effective access for storing, visualizing, distributing, and communicating my own data to my own group better than I could on my own.
