I was a research fellow investigating the familial form of mid-gut carcinoid tumors. The rareness of sporadic carcinoid tumors has prevented large-scale genetic analysis studies and has limited the development of reliable diagnostic modalities for early detection. My responsibilities included patient recruitment and enrollment, clinical care of hospitalized research patients, and performance of upper endoscopy, colonoscopy, and video capsule endoscopy on research patients. My research focused on defining the test performance characteristics of endoscopic, radiographic, nuclear medicine, and biochemical assays in early detection of carcinoid tumor. I continue to read video capsule endoscopy studies for this project.
