Gastrointestinal Surgery >> Education

Several educational opportunities are available in the lab. The positions are open to medical students and physicians who wish to gain additional experience in both basic gastrointestinal physiology and practical aspects of gastrointestinal surgery. Trainees typically become involved in numerous ongoing projects. Much of the research relates to gastrointestinal motility and physiology, but also several projects are focused on investigating inflammatory mechanisms of the colon, effects of acupuncture, and novel approaches to surgical conditions. Trainees are encouraged to apply to local and national funding opportunities. For further questions regarding educational opportunities, please contact directly to the principal investigators (Theodore Pappas <pappa001@mc.duke.edu>, Christopher Mantyh <manty001@mc.duke.edu>, Toku Takahashi < ttakahas@duke.edu > and Kirk Ludwig <ludwi002@mc.duke.edu>).
