Dr. Ashwin Ananthakrishnan is the Director of the MGH Crohn's and Colitis Center. He completed his medical school training at JIPMER in India and subsequently obtained his Master's in Public Health degree at the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health. After completing his GI fellowship at the Medical College of Wisconsin, he joined the faculty at Massachusetts General Hospital where he is involved in clinical care, research, and teaching. In addition to his clinical expertise in the management of patients with complex IBD, he has been involved in NIH-funded investigations using large prospective cohorts to define for the first time an important role for factors such as diet, vitamin D, stress, and sleep and determine how they may be altered to prevent disease or improve the course of established IBD. He is also conducting studies aimed at understanding how an individual's genetics and composition of their intestinal microbiome may predispose them to developing IBD, and how they can be used to determine which treatments may be of greatest benefit in each patient. He has published over 180 manuscripts, has co-authored a textbook in IBD, and serves on editorial boards of multiple major GI journals.
