Research Summary

Our IBD Program group does clinical research with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients including evaluating and treating depression in patients with inflammatory bowel disease and setting up databases to correlate genotype with phenotypic expression. We participate in several international multi-center trials for different medications and databases.

Our HHT group does clinical research in patients with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) who also have gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding.
