Research Departments & Organizations
Research activities include various clinical projects, related to both gastrointestinal diseases and nutritional support. As Director of the Nutritional Support Team, there is a multitude of opportunities for the clinical investigation of patients undergoing nutritional support. The utilization and effectiveness of home parenteral nutrition in patients with malignant bowel obstruction is a major ongoing interest. Other interests include hepatobiliary abnormalities during parenteral nutrition, nutritional support of bone marrow transplant patients and patients with inflammatory bowel disease.
