The Cleveland Digestive Diseases Research Core CenterVisit this Center


The Cleveland Digestive Diseases Research Core Center (DDRCC) is a cross-institutional and multi-disciplinary program between Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center (UHCMC), and Cleveland Clinic Foundation

Our Mission

The DDRCC aims to enhance the basic research capabilities of center investigators and develop and implement programs to support independent development of young investigators in digestive inflammation and metabolism research. The DDRCC also seeks to attract established investigators who are not currently involved in digestive disease research to apply their expertise to this important area and help translate basic research discoveries to the clinical arena.
