Dr. Dubinsky received her medical degree from Queen’s University, Canada. She completed her Pediatric Residency at Alberta Children’s Hospital, Calgary, Canada and her Clinical Fellowship in Gastroenterology and Nutrition at Sainte-Justine Hospital at the University of Montreal, Canada, She then completed her Research Fellowship in Inflammatory Bowel Disease at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles where she then served as the Director of the Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center before coming to Mount Sinai as the Chief of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the Kravis Children’s Hospital at Mount Sinai. Her primary research focuses on the influence of genetics and immune responses on the variability in clinical presentations, treatment responses and prognosis of early-onset IBD. Her other interests include the impact of IBD on fertility and pregnancy. She has lectured widely both nationally and internationally and has published in 83 peer reviewed journals including Gastroenterology, The Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition, Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, and the American Journal of Gastroenterology. She also currently sits on the editorial boards of several leading journals, including Gastroenterology, American Journal of Gastroenterology, and Nature Clinical Practice Gastroenterology & Hepatology.

- The Use of Small Bowel Ultrasound to Predict Response to Remicade Induction
Small bowel ultrasound (SBUS) is emerging as a well tolerated, non-invasive, radiation free, low cost measure to assess inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and is being used as first-line imaging in Europe. SBUS findings have been shown to correlate with endoscopic findings, and...
