Dr. Cohen confirms he will attend HPS Conference

Dr. Louis Cohen is interested in doing research on the gastrointestinal complications of Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome (HPS). He will attend most of the scientific meeting on Saturday, but will leave early to join patients with the GI complications of HPS at the GI Wish I Felt Better session. This year Dr. Cohen will not present at the conference. Instead, he hopes to meet patients with the GI complications of HPS to learn more about how their lives are affected.

Dr. Cohen is a gastroenterology fellow at Mount Sinai Hospital and is working on a master degree in transitional research at Rockefeller University. At Rockefeller, he is also a post-doctorate fellow in the Clinical Scholars Program and works in a lab studying genetically encoded small molecules.

Cohen received his medical degree from Tufts University in Boston and did his residency at Massachusetts General Hospital. From 2007 to 2010 he served on the institutional review board at Mass. General Hospital. From 2003 to 2005 Cohen coordinated research and assisted in protocol creation in the gastrointestinal medicine department at Mass. General Hospital for Children. In 2009, he served as Chief Resident at Newton Weselley Hospital, an affiliate of Mass. General Hospital. He received his undergraduate degree in economics and neuroscience from the University of Pennsylvania.
