Summary:Dr. Wine is a Clinician Scientist, Pediatric Gastroenterologist at the University of Alberta. After his Medical and Pediatric training in Israel, he completed a Pediatric Gastroenterology Fellowship at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto and earned his PhD in Cellular Microbiology at the University of Toronto. Dr. Wine's clinical expertise is managing children with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) with specific interest in diets, such as the Crohn's disease exclusion diet (CDED). This interest fits well with his laboratory research focus on involvement of intestinal bacteria and nutrition in development of intestinal inflammation, enabling translational bench-to-bedside research. The Wine lab has diverse expertise in basic aspects of IBD, especially in children, using patient samples and disease models to investigate the roles of microbes, nutrition, the epithelial lining and barrier function, and inflammation in pathogenesis. Dr. Wine is a co-principal applicant on the CIHR-CHILD Foundation Canadian Children IBD Network, member of the Dietitians or ECCO (D-ECCO) Committee, and is on the Executive of the ESPGHAN Porto IBD Group and Chair of the Porto Research Committee.
