Department Description:

The Center for Gastrointestinal Biology and Disease (CGIBD) is the stand-alone research department serving investigators who have an interest in digestive disease research. While it is common among departments and divisions of the Department of Medicine to have some sponsored programs, the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology is unique in that nearly every faculty member has funded research or clinical trials. There are, moreover, a number of researchers in other departments (particularly Cell and Molecular Biology, Surgery, Pediatrics) whose principle research areas are in digestive diseases and who work closely with the Center.

The Center also maintains strong collaborative ties with digestive disease researchers at Duke and NCSU. Because of the strong interest in research, the CGIBD also maintains a very large research training program. Included in this program are training grant programs plus a host of faculty development awards from federal and private sources.

The goals of the CGIBD are to promote research and collaboration in digestive diseases, to maintain a research training program such to provide digestive disease researchers for the future, to initiate and maintain outreach programs that serve the digestive disease research community and serve as a focus for solicitation of funds for digestive disease research and training.
