Gastrointestinal Center

The Gastrointestinal Center is one of the earliest special clinic departments in Tongji hospital, and the first batch national key discipline. We primarily focus on the treatment and research of tumor in stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum and anus etc. The excellent medical service will be given by normative radical operation (systemic lymph clearance in record); automatic minimally invasive surgery advanced internationally (laparoscope) and individual post-surgery treatment (tumor chemosensitivity).

The model of clinic companied with research is being adopted in gastrointestinal center, and we established the Tongji cancer research institute. We undertake many national key research projects, including key projects of national natural science foundation; clinical key projects of ministry of health (three times), and national 973 tumor plan etc. The director Gong received the National Science Found for Distinguished Young Scholars of China. The institute is one of the most important platforms in the field of cell cycle and apoptosis. Basic research can promote the clinic progress, such as the tumor chemosensitivity test, and give the new direction of oncotherapy.

The Dean of the department is Jian-Ping Gong.
