Center for Molecular Studies in Digestive and Liver Diseases

The mission of the Center for Molecular Studies in Digestive and Liver Diseases (CMSDLD) is to unite investigators with interests in digestive and liver disease in the exploration of creative experimental approaches as well as to stimulate others to enter these areas of research. The scientific focus of the Center revolves around host-environmental interactions in digestive and liver disease research from bench to bedside. The Center is divided into three thematic areas: Intestinal Biology, Liver Biology, and the Microbiome. Center resources include four biomedical research cores to support research in both model systems and human subjects, a pilot & feasibility program, and various enrichment activities including a weekly seminar series, liver and intestinal stem cell clubs, and an annual retreat.
