Dr. Dana Lukin specializes in the care of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. He completed medical and graduate training as well as residency in internal medicine at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, followed by fellowship training in gastroenterology at Columbia University Medical Center.
Dr. Lukin works closely with colleagues in affiliated specialties in order to provide comprehensive care for IBD patients as the Director of the Einstein-Montefiore Program for Inflammatory Bowel Diseases. He serves on the Chapter Medical Advisory Committee (CMAC) for the New York Chapter of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) as well as the CCFA Fellow’s Committee. He is a founding member of IBD-REMEDY (REsearch Mentoring EDucation new York) and serves on the Executive Committee of the New York Crohn’s and Colitis Organization (NYCCO).
With interests in clinical and translational research in IBD, Dr. Lukin is participating in several phase II and phase III Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis trials. His current translational research focuses on the microbiome in IBD as well as the role of indoles in intestinal permeability and signaling through the pregnane X receptor (PXR) and TLR4, funded by a pilot grant from the CCFA-Broad Medical Research Program.
