Research Training

The program provides a variety of basic science and clinical research opportunities. Faculty on campus are currently involved in clinical and basic research in a wide spectrum of gastroenterology diseases, with special emphases on inflammatory bowel disease (innate immunity, molecular biology, autoimmunity, animal models) motility lab, hepatology, biliary endoscopy, and pancreas/small bowel projects.

Fellows participate in clinical or basic science research projects under the supervision of members of the faculty. There are campus-wide opportunities amongst the faculty at the School of Medicine and former fellows have collaborated with faculty from Division of Hepatology, Division of Microbiology and Immunology, Department of Public Health, Sylvester Cancer Center, and many others.

T32 Research Training Grant
Under the direction of Dr. Maria Abreu, the University of Miami Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology T32 Program provides applicants with systematic, multidisciplinary postdoctoral research training in translational gastroenterology and hepatology. The program will provide training in three thematic areas including: inflammation, regeneration, and health care disparities. Core faculty from across the UM campus provide mentorship for this unique opportunity. Fellows in their 2nd or 3rd year can participate in either a basic/translational science research track or health disparities/clinical outcomes track.
