We have robust and growing research and training programs. Our faculty and fellows have conducted leading-edge clinical, translational and basic science research in every digestive disease subspecialty, including the fields of general gastroenterology, hepatology, inflammatory bowel disease, motility, pancreaticobiliary and advanced therapeutics.

We regularly present our work at regional, national and international scientific meetings and participate in academic leadership positions throughout the country. We actively collaborate with each other as well as other members of the national and international community.
