A Message from the Director

Since my return to the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, it has been my mission to establish a Crohn’s and Colitis Center for our community. Those living with these chronic conditions will be better managed in a clinical center that provides compassionate, multi-disciplinary IBD care.

Complementary to the clinical care, our mission is to transform the medicine we practice. Our patients inspire us to seek discoveries in the laboratory that will be delivered to the bedside. We are collaborating with several departments in a variety of disciplines in science and medicine to drill down to the causes of IBD. You and I know there has to be a way to cure these diseases – that is our goal!
