Cleveland Digestive Health Young Investigator Network

Current Leadership:

Wendy Goodman, PhD

Maneesh Dave, MD, MPH

Group Description:

The Cleveland Digestive Health Young Investigator Network is an enrichment group supported by the CDDRCC Enrichment Program co-directors Dr. Fabio Cominelli and Dr. Theresa Pizarro, and organized by Dr. Maneesh Dave and Dr. Wendy Goodman. Meetings are held quarterly for the CDDRCC post-docs, fellows and junior faculty, with a guest lecture from a senior investigator.

We hope the Young Investigator Network will serve as both a peer-mentorship network, as well as a valuable resource for guidance on career development topics. The topics for lectures will be guided by interests of the group; therefore, please bring your ideas to each meeting so we can discuss!  In addition, depending on interest, the group may offer opportunities for peer review of grants and manuscripts, travel awards, and opportunities to present research.
