A word from Gianfranco D. Alpini, PhD
Our major goal and objective is to discover and share cutting edge knowledge about the digestive system and the diseases that affect millions in the United States. Our research team consists of both basic scientists and physician/scientists from a wide variety of backgrounds with varying interests and disciplines. These combined investigators support the practice of "bench to bedside" research to benefit and contribute to human health. Along with seasoned investigators, the DDRC also believes in training of future scientists and provides an excellent learning environment for the training of undergraduates, medical students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and residents.
