Invest in Us

Are you interested in investing in Emory University Department of Medicine Division of Digestive Diseases? Emory’s expertise in digestive disease research begins with the basic sciences, where innovative ideas are born, and continues through every phase of clinical trials. Our strategy is to convert laboratory findings into new approaches for diagnosing, treating, and preventing disease. This takes tremendous resources, and the division’s faculty relies on the generosity of private donors. Philanthropy helps Emory specialists apply their extraordinary expertise to life-changing discoveries. You can support their work with a gift to the Division of Digestive Diseases.

Previous gifts have gone to support the following:

  • R. Bruce Logue Professorship endowment
  • Professor in Digestive and inflammatory Bowel Diseases endowment
  • Research in intestinal biology, non-alcoholic fatty liver diseases
  • Marcus Foundation grant has provided educational materials for trainees
  • Shanthi Sitaraman Lectures (read more below)
