Academic Interests

Dr. Cohen’s research interests are primarily involved in two major areas of clinical gastroenterology: inflammatory bowel diseases and health care outcomes. His studies in IBD include investigations of both standard and experimental pharmacological therapies, including novel immunomodulatory agents, as well as studies analyzing quality of life and the economics involved in the diagnosis and treatment of inflammatory bowel disease. In the area of health care outcomes, Dr. Cohen is applying the principles of biostatistics, epidemiology, and other integral components of health outcomes research in hope to address some of the perplexing issues arising in the field of gastroenterology in the face of a changing health care system.
