Associate Professor of Medicine


My research focuses on injury, repair, and cancer development in the gastrointestinal tract. My laboratory performs translational research with the goal of improving health of the gastrointestinal tract. Our work is based in observations from human clinical research. We use databases of esophageal and colon disease to learn more about clinical risk factors for disease. We also use pathology samples of tumors to study the gastrointestinal tract in different states: healthy, inflamed or damaged, and with cancer.
