BIOGRAPHY:

Dr. Amosy MKoma, is Associate Professor of Surgery and Cancer Biology at Meharry Medical College School of Medicine and Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Division of General Surgery, Colon and Rectal Surgery. His research interest is focused on the biopathophysiology of the predominantly colonic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) which includes ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn’s colitis (CC). More focused on molecular diagnostics methodologies and surgical management of UC and familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). The research is gravitated to gastrointestinal disease, specifically relating to the restorative physiology of intestinal continuity after operation, specifically, restorative proctocolectomy and ileal pouch anal-anastomosis. Further, the research efforts are directed towards developing strategic methodologies based on molecular biometrics using MALDI mass spectrometry, proteomics and recombinant single-chain antibody to identify molecular fingerprints that can provide differential diagnostics for the colitides.
