A Message From The Director

Dr. Ellen J. Scherl

Dr. Ellen J. Scherl, M.D.

Welcome to the Jill Roberts Center for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (JRC). Our mission is to improve patient care by personalizing therapies for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and to discover cures for Crohn’s disease and colitis.

JRC is one of the nation’s leading multidisciplinary centers for the diagnosis, comprehensive care and innovative treatment of patients with IBD. We offer integrated clinical services from the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medicine network, including access to world class surgeons, pediatricians, rheumatologists and hepatologists, as well as active basic and translational research programs at the Jill Roberts Institute for Research in Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Weill Cornell Cancer Center and Cornell University School of Veterinary Medicine.

We offer patients early, effective IBD interventions, including cutting edge clinical trials that aim to treat and prevent the progression of Crohn’s disease and colitis. Building on the delivery of comprehensive care, we are committed to improving the lives of patients and families by developing unique clinical services, including a dedicated IBD nutrition program, stress management support, an IBD-related musculoskeletal health and wellness program that focuses on bone, muscle and joint health, IBD genetic testing and counseling, and dysplasia/colorectal cancer screening and surveillance programs.

Our goal is to develop novel, safer treatments through “lab to life” research, translating laboratory discoveries into transformative therapies that improve patients’ lives.

We hope that this website serves as a fitting introduction to our staff and clinical services.

Sincerely,

Ellen Scherl, MD, FACP, FACG, AGAF, FASGE
