Ongoing Research Funded by DHF

Passion and Determination

The Digestive Health Foundation focuses on improving the quality of life for anyone facing a digestive disorder by supporting cutting-edge medical research, physician training, and education at the Northwestern Medicine Digestive Health Center. As DHF enters its eighth year, we have raised nearly $20 million in support of 82 independent research studies by the Northwestern Medicine Digestive Health Center’s world-class physician scientists. Together, we are changing the landscape of digestive health.
