Dr. John Geibel

Geibel’s research focuses on gastric, renal, and intestinal ion transportation in health and disease. Acidic, basic, and calcium ion transportation is critical to maintain healthy levels of acid production in the stomach and to modulate fluid excretion in the intestines and kidneys. Geibel’s research aims to understand and treat conditions such as gastric reflux, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, and kidney stones at the cellular level.

The AGA strives to advance the science and practice of gastroenterology. Approximately 100 AGA fellows were selected this year based on their outstanding achievements as clinical practitioners or researchers.
