Pediatric GI/Hepatology/Nutrition Fellowship

Research

Opportunities for educational, clinical, and bench research abound in our division. Major research activities currently conducted by the pediatric gastroenterology faculty and fellows include clinical trials on reflux esophagitis, eosinophilic esophagitis, inflammatory bowel disease, esophageal pH monitoring, G.I. motility, hepatitis B and C, enteral nutrition and steatohepatitis. We will support the resident fellow who demonstrates a strong interest in bench research in other G.I. related topics by sending him/her to the appropriate scientific research facility on-campus or in the vicinity.

Junior fellows are guided by a Scholarship Oversight Committee starting with the initial formulation of a research question and up to the completion of the research project as a senior fellow. A monthly Research Conference allows for discussion of new research ideas and evaluation of the progress of the ongoing studies. All are encouraged to present research data at national scientific meetings and generate manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed journals.
