Digestive Health Institute



Research is at the heart of the the Digestive Health Institute at Jefferson, and it remains a crucial part of our mission. Each department carries out basic, translational, and clinical research designed to understand fundamental mechanisms of the digestive system. Our specialists translate that understanding into treatments for celiac disease and other digestive disorders.
