A Dartmouth Health Children’s pediatric gastroenterologist was awarded for her research by the North America Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (NASPGHAN). Julie L. Sanville, DO, received the Young Faculty Clinical Investigator Research Award at NASPGHAN’s annual meeting this month in San Diego, for her abstract titled “Pre-Modulator Microbiome Alterations Associated with Post-Modulator Growth Outcomes in Pediatric Cystic Fibrosis: Can We Predict Outcomes?”
“I am incredibly honored by the recognition, but also encouraged by efforts to highlight work being done by myself and colleagues with respect to the gastrointestinal manifestations in cystic fibrosis,” Sanville said. “I am certainly very thankful to the whole Dartmouth Cystic Fibrosis Research Center community, my colleagues at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, and the New Hampshire Cystic Fibrosis Center for their ongoing support and encouragement as I make my way as a clinician investigator.”
Sanville is clinical director of the Dartmouth CF Infant and Child Cohort Study, and associate pediatric program director of the New Hampshire CF Center. Her research focus is early microbiome influence on clinical GI/nutrition outcomes and how highly effective modulator therapies in CF care may impact those areas. She participated in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s DIGEST (Developing Innovative GastroEnterology Specialty Training) Grant Program, with the goal of training more GI doctors to work within CF programs to help focus clinical care and research efforts around the GI issues related to CF.
