  • Alyssa Parian Lab

    The Alyssa Parian Lab works to identify early markers of dysplasia. We also study inflammatory bowel disease-associated cancers, conduct IBD clinical trials and examine IBD extraintestinal manifestations.

    Research Areas: inflammatory bowel disease, cancer, displaysia

  • Brindusa Truta Lab

    The Brindusa Truta Lab studies inflammatory bowel diseases, specifically Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Recent studies defined factors associated with the development of Crohn's disease after ileal pouch anal anastomosis; determined the value of histology in identifying Lynch syndrome in early-onset of colorectal cancer patients; and compared the phenotype and genotype in adenomatous polyposis patients with and without a family history.

    Research Areas: inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis

    Principal Investigator

    Brindusa Truta, M.A.S., M.D.

  • Ellen Stein Lab

    Research interests in the Ellen Stein Lab include motility disorders and esophageal diseases such as reflux disease, achalasia, Barrett's esophagus and eosinophilic esophagitis.

    Research Areas: reflux disease, esophageal disease, achalasia, eosinophilic esophagitis, Barrett's esophagus, motility disorders

    Principal Investigator

  • Eun Ji Shin Lab

    Research interests in the Eun Ji Shin Lab include clinical research on obesity and the effect on GI neoplasia/malignancy.

    Research Areas: gastroenterology, neoplasms, obesity

  • Florin Selaru Lab

    Research interests in the Florin Selaru Lab comprise the molecular changes associated with the transition from inflammatory states in the GI tract (colon, stomach, biliary tree) to frank cancers. In addition, our current research—funded by the AGA, FAMRI and the Broad Foundation—works to further the understanding of cancer development and progression in the gastrointestinal tract.

    Research Areas: gastroenterology, cancer, inflammation, molecular biology

    Principal Investigator

    Florin Selaru, M.D.

  • Fluorescence Imaging Core

    The goal of the Fluorescence Imaging Core is to provide state-of-art light microscopy technology to the members of the Hopkins Basic Research Digestive Disease Development Center and to the whole Hopkins scientific community. Services include advanced cell and tissue multicolor imaging using Zeiss LSM-510 META, including XYZT, FREP and FRET; live cell and tissue imaging using an Olympus FV1000 MP with ratiometric ionic probes; and measurements of intracellular pH (potentially other ions) on cell populations using PTI’s RatioMaster and QuantMaster spectrofluorometic systems equipped with temperature controlled perfusion chambers.

    Research Areas: imaging, light microscopy, digestive diseases

  • Francis Giardiello Lab

    Research in the Francis Giardiello Lab focuses on the study of cancer and cancer chemoprevention in the gastrointestinal tract. This has included the investigation of the genetic basis of familial colorectal cancer and the use of genetic testing in the hereditary forms of colorectal cancer. We have a continuing interest in the study of the genotypic-phenotypic correlations in polyposis syndromes, which include familial adenomatous polyposis, juvenile polyposis and Peutz-Jeghers syndrome.

    Research Areas: gastrointestinal system, colorectal cancer, cancer, genomics, polyposis syndromes
