Research in Gastroenterology

At Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, leading pediatric gastroenterologists are conducting laboratory and clinical research in pursuit of new and better therapies for disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, liver and pancreas.

Laboratory Studies

The National Institutes of Health-funded laboratory of Mark E. Lowe, MD, PhD, is investigating lipases and the role the enzymes play in digestion and disease. A deeper understanding of lipases offers many possible benefits, including new therapies for acute pancreatitis, better ways to feed chronically ill infants and more effective appetite control. Dr. Lowe is chief of pediatric gastroenterology at Children’s Hospital.
