Post-Doctoral Program

The postdoctoral training program (for Ph.D.’s) in Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition at The University of Chicago provides advanced training for qualified applicants in a broad area of digestive disease research. Funded in large part by the National Institutes of Health through a Digestive Disease Training grant, the program provides the scientist with training in basic GI research preparing them for academic research careers.

Through interactions with members of the gastroenterology section and other investigators within The University of Chicago, the trainee will be provided with a broad and in-depth laboratory based training experience in the latest molecular, cellular and biophysical techniques utilized in digestive disease research. Trainees receive and attend weekly lecture series on recent developments in GI research presented by national and international authorities in the area.
