1. Gastrointestinal tract as a site of disease pathogenesis. One major area relates to HIV, answering questions about the HIV reservoir, efforts to cure and address inflammation, and targeted interventions to modulate the microbiota. Multidisciplinary approaches include development of organoid models, isolation of epithelial cells/lymphocytes/fibroblasts/microbiota for systematic studies, and interventional trials such as fecal transplant. Stool, gut mucosal samples, and blood are routinely collected from participants.
2. Prevention of colorectal cancer. Dr. Somsouk's research program is supported by the CDC, in collaboration with the SF Department of Public Health, to examine how a centralized patient panel management system could improve uptake of colorectal cancer screening and improve other health behaviors and conditions in the safety-net. Time series and randomized interventions are employed along with administrative methods and mathematical simulation models to identify barriers and best practices for colorectal cancer screening.
3. Individual Trainee Record and Competency Solution (iTRACS). Dr. Somsouk is leading product development of a documentation platform for trainees requires technical skills e.g., endoscopists, surgeons. Mobile platform tracks performance, generates progress reports, and informs stakeholders of breadth and volume of procedures.
