Dr. Nina Gupta is originally from Wheaton, Illinois and received her bachelor’s degree from The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She was then drawn to the University of Chicago where she obtained her medical degree from the Pritzker School of Medicine, and stayed on to completed her internal medicine residency training. She is currently completing her gastroenterology fellowship at the University of Chicago.
Dr. Gupta’s research interests are in the utilization of endoscopy, particularly novel endoscopic methods, for prevention and early detection of gastrointestinal malignancies. Her past work has explored the use of in-vivo cross-sectional imaging (optical coherence tomography) during upper endoscopy for improved detection of dysplasia in patients with Barrett’s esophagus, a condition which increases risk of esophageal adenocarcinoma. Her current research interests also include studying contrast enhancement techniques during colonoscopy to improve detection and management of pre-malignant colon polyps.
