So many people with cystic fibrosis have gut pain. It is often times, debilitating. Dr. Matthew DiMagno and Dr. Jorge Machicado are working to find answers to the suffering of people with CF, and others without. Dr. Machicado is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the University of Michigan. Dr. Machicado earned his medical degree from Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia in Lima, Peru, and received a Master of Public Health at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Dr. Machicado’s research focuses on epidemiology and clinical trials in pancreatic disorders. He has authored over 70 peer-reviewed articles, most of them on pancreatitis and pancreatic cysts. He has been recently selected as a FORWARD scholar by the American Gastroenterological Association, which aims to support physician scientists and future leaders in GI from under-represented populations. The Bonnell Foundation gave Dr. Machicado and his team a five thousand dollar grant to help study gut pain in people with CF. It’s a long pilot program, similar to a clinical trial. This is a feasibility study.
