Dr Eric Shah

Assistant Professor at Dartmouth College

Dr. Shah's research laboratory focuses on improving best practice adoption of established diagnostics and treatments for disorders of brain-gut interaction (DGBIs) and dysmotility--the most common chronic gastrointestinal conditions in medicine. His lab has two priorities:
1) Improving access to care by developing and testing point-of-care diagnostics in clinical trials for chronic constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, and other disorders of brain-gut interaction and dysmotility.
2) Improving value of care by performing health technology assessments (HTA) harnessing systematic review with meta-analysis, cost-effectiveness/cost-benefit analyses, and health economics and outcomes research (HEOR) methods to evaluate the comparative costs and health outcomes with medical devices, prescription drugs, and other treatments for conditions across gastroenterology.

Dr. Shah served as the inaugural Editorial Fellow for Gastroenterology, the flagship journal of the American Gastroenterological Association. He completed the American College of Gastroenterology/Food and Drug Administration ORISE Visiting Fellowship at the FDA campus in Silver Spring, MD with the Division of Gastroenterology and Inborn Errors Products.
