Mayo Clinic Center for Cell Signaling in Gastroenterology (C-SiG)Visit this Center



The Mayo Clinic Center for Cell Signaling in Gastroenterology supports research that is critically important for furthering understanding of the mechanisms underlying digestive diseases and translating this knowledge into practical applications for the diagnosis, prevention, monitoring and treatment of disease.


Our Mission

The mission of the Mayo Clinic Center for Cell Signaling in Gastroenterology is to improve understanding of the signaling pathways that control the function of gastrointestinal cells in health and disease.

Center Goals

The goals of the Mayo Clinic Center for Cell Signaling in Gastroenterology are to support and enhance digestive disease research by:

  • Fostering collaborative, multidisciplinary research both by expanding the technical and collaborative capabilities of established GI scientists and by attracting investigators from other disciplines
  • Promoting synergistic interaction among Mayo Clinic investigators through activities that support digestive disease-related research and promote translation of basic science discoveries into clinical research
  • Developing and implementing a robust and diverse Education Program that includes seminars, workshops, symposia, and Web-based curricula
  • Identifying and nurturing development of new investigators interested in digestive disease research via a rigorously peer-reviewed Pilot and Feasibility Program
  • Creating a supportive infrastructure that makes technologies more easily accessible; providing technical expertise to members from experts in a particular technology; using existing resources efficiently; and developing novel methodologies through three linked biomedical center cores
