Academic Interests

Dr. Semrad's research interests are directed towards clinical applications of interventional endoscopy techniques for the early detection, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the pancreatic and biliary systems and tumors of the gastrointestinal luminal tract, with a focus on modalities such as endoscopic ultrasound, ERCP, and endoscopic ablative technologies. Current clinical research interests include novel therapeutic modalities for early esophageal cancer, studies evaluating the endoscopic teaching process, and decision modeling for a variety of complex endoscopic/surgical conditions. Further research will focus on endoscopic device designs as they pertain to tissue ablation and/or guided visualization study of their endoscopic therapeutics or imaging potential in the GI lumen, pancreatic, or biliary tracts.
