Nima Fattahi, MD



I am a medical graduate (MD) from Kurdistan, Iran, with a special interest in gastroenterology. Over the past decade, I have gained extensive experience in both clinical and experimental research. My areas of expertise include scientific writing, study design, statistical analysis, clinical research, conducting randomized controlled trials (RCTs), and working with animal models such as rats and mice. Additionally, I am skilled in various laboratory techniques such as PCR, IHC, ISH, and western blot. Alongside my technical abilities, I possess strong communication skills and a well-established social network.

Currently, I hold the position of Associate Research Scientist in the field of Gastroenterology at Yale School of Medicine. At Yale, my focus lies in exploring different treatment approaches to improve the survival rates of animal models affected by Gaucher disease. Additionally, I actively contribute to studies involving mice models that exhibit liver cancer and myeloma phenotypes.

In the realm of clinical projects, our team is dedicated to discovering biomarkers associated with fulminant alcohol-induced hepatitis.
