CGIBD Research Seminar – “ Early life and environmental factors in Eosinophilic Esophagitis: Unraveling the mystery of EoE ” by Elizabeth Jensen, MPH, PhD
February 14, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
“ Early life and environmental factors in Eosinophilic Esophagitis: Unraveling the mystery of EoE ”
Elizabeth Jensen, MPH, PhD
Department of Epidemiology & Prevention
Wake Forest School of Medicine
Dr. Jensen’s research focuses primarily on etiologic mechanisms for diseases in the pediatric population. Her training was in reproductive, perinatal, and pediatric epidemiology and much of her research ahs focused on early life perturbations implicated in future development of disease.
Dr. Jensen has contributed significantly to the epidemiologic literature on eosinophilic gastrointestinal diseases. Her research on eosinophilic esophagitis, incorporates genetic data to investigate ho certain early life factors my contribute to disease development in genetically-susceptible individuals. She is also evaluating the relationship between treatment approach and growth in children affected by eosinophilic gastrointestinal disease. This body of research may help inform treatment decisions in children diagnosed with eosinophilic esophagitis.
