My main clinical interest is in inflammatory bowel disease. I have a practice focused on the care of patients with Crohn's and ulcerative colitis. I also participate in clinical as well as basic research in inflammatory bowel disease.
ResearchI participate as a co- or sub-investigator in all the clinical trials at the MGH Crohn's & Colitis Center. In addition, I study the role of different immune cells in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease.
