Current Research

Cedars-Sinai’s digestive diseases research focuses on subspecialty areas in inflammatory bowel diseases, motility, pancreatobiliary and hepatology. As a teaching hospital, Cedars-Sinai offers training opportunities for medical students, interns, residents and fellows. The overarching philosophy for gastroenterology research at Cedars-Sinai is rooted in the understanding that bi-directional translation of basic and clinical research will optimize and accelerate the impact of research and affect patient care. The program is designed to promote and deliver “Precision Medicine” across a spectrum of digestive diseases. Byproducts of success are strong support from federally funded research programs, as well as fruitful relationships with the biotechnology, medical device and pharmaceutical industries. The resulting innovations will yield exciting opportunities for academic/corporate co-development of products and technology.
