Mission and Leadership

The mission of the Columbia University Digestive and Liver Diseases Research Center is to promote collaborative and multidisciplinary research in digestive and liver diseases, integrating expertise in clinical and basic gastroenterology and hepatology with state-of-the-art computational bioinformatics.

Our goal is to advance the health of patients through better understanding of digestive and liver diseases and delivery of improved therapeutic, preventative, and diagnostic approaches.

These efforts are supported by a team of full and associate members, specialized cores, and programs that focus on two central themes:

We support collaboration among different specialties and backgrounds and promote innovative and creative research approaches. We unite investigators with interests in digestive, liver, and pancreatic physiology and disease in the exploration of creative experimental approaches. We encourage excellent investigators from outside the field to enter this research area.
