Colon & Rectal Surgery at UofL


Susan Galandiuk, MD, Program DirectorWelcome to the Price Institute of Surgical Research. Founded in 1957 by John W. Price Jr., MD, the Institute strives to enhance patient care through advances in surgical techniques and technology and through basic and clinical research.

Dr. Price believed in the promise of basic research as a surgeon and, later in his new career as a successful financier, used his position to establish a generous trust to attract the best and brightest surgical research fellows to the University of Louisville.

Each of our seven laboratories focuses on a specific field of surgical research, including: digestive disease, tissue ischemia and energy metabolism, and polycystic ovary syndrome.

The Institute

  • Fosters collaborative research among its team of researchers and with researchers at universities worldwide and biomedical device companies.
  • Attracts outstanding surgeons-in-training from prestigious institutions—nationally and internationally—who wish to pursue full-time basic research fellowships.
  • Mentors the careers of high school, undergraduate, graduate, and medical school students.

Our investigators and I invite you to learn more about the exciting research taking place at the Price Institute.
