Digestive Diseases

The DDC brings together gastro­enterologists, surgeons, and radiologists who have special interests in dealing with various digestive problems. It is our vision to be the nationally recognized leader in multispecialty patient care, research, and education in digestive disorders.

Clinical research — Clinical research is the study of disease in patients, often involving clinical trials (or studies). These studies involve human volunteers to help answer specific health questions. Carefully conducted clinical trials are the best way to find treatments that really work. All such studies are very carefully designed and regulated to make them as safe as possible. They are handled by our own professional research management team.

Basic science research — Basic science research is carried out in laboratories, studying mechanisms of disease and new medicines. Much of this research concerns the basic mechanisms of cancer, and is carried out in collaboration with scientists in the Hollings Cancer Center.
