Gastroenterology and Hepatology Research

Major research interests in our division include small intestinal function, colon cancer molecular biology and genetics, healing of peptic ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome and problems of disturbed gastrointestinal motility.

We are also involved in a variety of patient studies. At UW Health in Madison, Wisconsin, one of our greatest strengths is our involvement in groundbreaking clinical trials or research studies conducted to answer specific scientific questions about new ways to diagnose, detect and treat disease.

Our gastroenterology and hepatology researchers are currently enrolling patients for a variety of studies, with the goal of improving the health and quality of life of people living with diseases such as hepatitis C and other liver conditions, ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.

If you are a patient interested in learning more about our clinical studies, or if you are a referring physician and believe one of your patients may be appropriate for one of the following trials, please call the University of Wisconsin GI and Hepatology Clinical Research Office at (608) 263-4185.
