The Enrichment Program aims to promote career development and training through providing a fertile intellectual environment for interaction, exchange and collaboration; among investigators within the Division of Digestive Diseases, with other similar Centers and with the broader research community to mutually benefit from the expertise that is essential to, and aligns with, the mission of the Center.

The Enrichment Program is led by Jianwen Que, MD, PhD, and Rebecca Haeusler, PhD and as part of its activities, will organize the monthly seminar series, as well as the Annual Retreat, meetings, and workshops.

Annual Retreat

The Annual Retreat is part of the Enrichment Program with a focused, one-to-two day interaction among students, trainees, researchers and faculty for scientific exchange on the first day; followed by a Board meeting on the next day, with Internal and External Advisory Board members, for important planning for the Centers’ research mission and activities. The event is expected to provide an opportunity to build research connections, summarize selected research projects in various member laboratories, and obtain valuable feedback. The Retreat will also have a Poster Session for students, postdoctoral fellows, and trainees as a preparatory module to train them for future conferences and scientific meetings.

Seminar Series

Columbia University hosts a range of scientific conferences, meetings, and presentations at the university campus. Specific to the DLD-Center, is the Seminar Series- a monthly event that will feature researchers in the field of digestive diseases either within Columbia (Internal Speakers) or from other institutions (External Speakers) as part of the Enrichment Program. The goal is to primarily facilitate the integration of the members within the DLD-RC and the Columbia Community while also encouraging a broader outreach by inviting external experts in the field.
