Research Summary

Dr. Ilseung Cho is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the NYU School of Medicine. Dr. Cho's has a specific clinical interest in technically challenging colonoscopies and high risk polyp resections as well as gastrointestinal bleeding and endoscopic hemostasis.


Dr. Cho’s laboratory focuses on the gut microbiome (the community of bacteria that live in the gastrointestinal tract) and how it affects health and disease. Specifically, he focuses on the effect of the colonic microbiome on metabolism as well as in the development of colorectal cancer through epigenetic mechanisms. His research has been published in a variety of journals, including Nature, Cell, FASEB, PLoS ONE, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Mucosal Immunology, and Nature Reviews Genetics. Dr Cho has contributed to several textbooks, including the current edition of Goldman’s Cecil Medicine, one of the primary textbooks in Internal Medicine. He is the principal or co-investigator on numerous research grants from various organizations including the Doris Duke Foundation and the National Institutes of Health.
