Since 2010, Dr. Koon has been an Assistant Professor of UCLA Division of Digestive Diseases. He is a member of UCLA Center for Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, UCLA Microbiome Center, and American Gastroenterological Association. Dr. Koon’s research is focused on the roles of antimicrobial peptide Cathelicidin, cathelicidin mimics, and cathelicidin receptor in inflammatory bowel disease, intestinal infection, colon cancer, obesity and diabetes. Cathelicidin is a natural endogenous anti-microbial peptide that is protective to host as a part of innate immune system.
