Dr. Orock has been working as a post-doctoral fellow in the department of neurogastroenterology under the mentorship of Dr. Beverley Greenwood Van-Meerveld. As part of the neurogastroenterology team, Dr Orock’s work focuses on revealing the mechanisms underlying stress-induced visceral pain seen in irritable bowel syndrome. Furthermore, Dr Orock is investigating the mechanisms of how behavioral therapies and environmental enrichment may ameliorate stress induced visceral pain. Dr Orock was recently awarded the ANMS discovery grant to investigate whether behavioral therapies could also ameliorate post-infectious irritable bowel syndrome.
