Welcome to GIDRU


Many of our clinical members are cross-appointed in basic science departments to facilitate joint supervision of research students and fellows. This strong link between the laboratory bench and bedside is one of our major strengths.


The laboratories of GIDRU faculty members offer positions for masters and doctoral research students, postdoctoral fellows. They also provide opportunities for undergraduate students interested in summer positions or wishing to undertake a thesis research project.
