Mark W. Allam Lecture: Modeling the Human Intestine

Thursday, October 25
8:45 AM - 9:30 AM

Sponsored By: 

As a pediatric surgeon scientist, Dr. Helmrath has established a large multidisciplinary team dedicated to clinical, translational, and basic science research focused on human diseases. Clinically, he is dedicated to patients with intestinal diseases and obesity. In his laboratory he focuses on characterizing intestinal stem cells during intestinal adaptation and developing intestinal regenerative strategies. By combining his current roles as surgical director of research, director for the Center for Bariatric Research and Innovation, surgical director of the Intestinal Rehabilitation Program, and associate director of Clinical Translation for CuSTOM, his strong basic science research background further allows him to translate human GI conditions to the laboratory to develop highly innovative approaches to treat intestinal diseases.

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.
