Assistant Professor, Department of Pediatrics, Division of Gastroenterology

Research Summary

Dr. Brenner is a pediatric gastroenterologist and clinical investigator, with research interests that include prevention, patient-centered research, and clinical outcomes among patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Her focus is on preventive medicine in IBD because in the belief that disease prevention efforts, including anticipatory guidance, play an essential role in IBD care. She utilized the IBD Partners Kids & Teens cohort [supported by the CGIBD Clinical Research Core] to validate the use of the Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System® (PROMIS®) Pediatric measures in pediatric IBD. When the pandemic started, she co-founded an international, collaborative database that provided essential information on COVID-19 outcomes among patients with IBD. She is currently investigating reproductive health among young women with IBD. Although IBD greatly influences reproductive health, the gastroenterology community has little data to inform anticipatory guidance specifically for young women with IBD. Her current research aims to help fill this gap. She is a prior T32 trainee and current T32 junior mentor.
