Collaborate with Us

CEGIR is committed to advancing research for people affected by Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Diseases. Learn more about how you can join us in creating a brighter future for patients and their families.

Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC)

The Scientific Advisory Committee provides access to the use of samples and data collected in CEGIR clinical trials. This includes CORE outcome measures (COMs), patient-reported outcome measures (PROs), blood, and biopsies. Monthly meetings are conducted to assess progress and assist with troubleshooting. You will also be afforded an initial review of concepts and assistance with study design, as well as a consultation with the Data Management and Coordinating Center (DMCC) statistics team to assure proper study design and power. Members will also enjoy guidance from senior researchers in the field.
