As evidence of this commitment, a substantial proportion of our recent trainees transition from their training at UCSF to academic including leadership positions in pediatric gastroenterology around the US...



Emory University Children's Pediatric Research Center

Pediatric research is thriving and expanding in Atlanta through a unique, multi-institutional initiative. Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Emory University School of Medicine have formed a close partnership that combines the clinical strengths of the nation’s largest pediatric healthcare provider (Children’s) and the research strengths of a leading academic medical center (Emory University

Emory University School of Medicine , Department of Genetics is conducting research on Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which includes Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), is estimated to affect approximately 1.2 million Americans. IBD is a destructive, life-long, chronic inflammatory disorder which results in gastrointestinal bleeding, weight loss and poor quality of life. IBD affects all races and onset of the disease is usually in children and young adults. Familial, twin and linkage studies suggest that CD is highly heritable...

"Can it really be possible to transform a person’s own cells into a weapon against various forms of disease? And what if those very cells could be retrained to attack cancer cells or to prevent autoimmune diseases?

Answers to these questions and many more are about to soon be realized, as Emory University Hospital will serve as the launch site for the very appropriately-named EPIC (Emory Personalized Immunotherapy Center)."

Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America

The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America is a leading supporter and funder of medical research in Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis—collectively known as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD).  

CCFA provides research training awards to emerging researchers to help ensure their continued work in the field of IBD throughout their careers.
