Announcing our early March speaker!
Dr. Levinthal serves as Assistant Professor in the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition at the University of Pittsburgh Department of Medicine and Director of the Neurogastroenterology and Motility Center at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, where he leads an active research program that spans clinical, translational, and basic science research projects focused on understanding the neural basis of mind-body interactions in gastrointestinal (GI) health and disease. He hopes one day to translate his initial neuroanatomic findings into clinical trials of brain-based therapies for patients with refractory functional GI disorders. In addition to his longstanding interest in understanding the nature and impact of GI symptoms associated with neurological illnesses, he is currently pursuing translational and clinical research in patients with cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS) and is involved in research into determinants of CVS disease se-verity and the development of novel therapeutic interventions in this population. Dr. Levinthal is a CVSA medical advisor and served on the committee that developed and published the Adult Treatment Guidelines.
