Michael A. Helmrath, MD, MS
Cincinnati Children’s Colorectal Center
As a pediatric surgeon Scientist, I have dedicated my clinical and academic research career to the care of patients with intestinal diseases and obesity. The main focus of my laboratory is directed towards characterizing intestinal stem cells during intestinal adaption and developing intestinal regenerative strategies. My clinical career is focused on characterizing the adaptive response to both patients with intestinal short bowel and to obese adolescents undergoing bariatric procedures. By combining my experience as the Surgical Director of Research and Center for Bariatric Research and Innovation at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, my long-term goal is to establish translational therapies for the management of patients with intestinal diseases.
