Research Programs

Faculty members in the Section of Gastroenterology/Nutrition at The University of Chicago are currently involved in basic and clinical research on many different diseases and disorders. The balance between basic and clinical research is the template for continued success and expansion of current programs. The strength of our research programs is derived from the collaborative research between faculty, fellows, post-docs, graduate students, medical students and college students within the GI Section and with members of the Department of Surgery, Pediatrics and Pathology.

The Section of Gastroenterology maintains approximately 12,000 square feet of research space in the Knapp Center for Biological Discovery. These labs are brand new and furnished with state of the art laboratory equipment. The clinical research facilities are housed in the Logan Clinical Research Center which maintains a registry of over 5000 patients with inflammatory bowel disease.
