Research Opportunities

The GI Motility Fellowship Program at Cedars-Sinai has a strong foothold in research with its relationship with the Medically Associated Science and Technology (MAST) Program at Cedars-Sinai. The MAST Program conducts research in basic science, translational and clinical research that is aimed at the development of novel drugs and devices related to the microbiome and GI motility.

With that, the research experience is a critical component to the GI Motility Fellowship Program. Once an applicant has been accepted to the program, we strongly encourage early communication through the program director to identify an area of research interest that can be discussed prior to starting the program.

It is expected that fellows will take ownership of at least one high-quality project under appropriate mentorship. Fellows are strongly encouraged to submit their research to a national or international meeting and submit a manuscript for publication to a high-quality journal.
