Emory Epithelial Pathobiology Research Development CenterVisit this Center




The Emory Epithelial Pathobiology Research Development Center was established in 2003 as a new Digestive Diseases Research Development Center (DDRDC) funded by the NIDDK. Research supported by the Center focuses on epithelial biology and pathobiology of the digestive tract with three overarching themes: Inflammation/Infection, Proliferation/Differentiation, and Normal Physiology.

Our Mission

The mission of the Center is to provide core services to a group of highly specialized and interactive epithelial biologists and pathobiologists in the digestive system with the intention of enhancing research capability, promoting new research directions, and fostering collaboration and interaction among the investigators.
