Wake Forest School of Medicine

Dr. Elizabeth Jensen is a pediatric epidemiologist whose research primarily focuses on etiologic factors in the development of pediatric, immune-mediated chronic disease, with a strong focus on eosinophilic gastrointestinal diseases (EGIDs). She has contributed significantly to the current epidemiologic literature of eosinophilic gastrointestinal diseases and is an investigator for the Consortium on Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disease Researchers (CEGIR). She also contributes to EGID Partners, a registry and patient-powered research network for advancing EGID research.

Dr. Jensen leads an on-going study leveraging administrative databases and resources in Denmark to study in utero and early life environmental exposures in interaction with genotype in the development of eosinophilic esophagitis. She also leads, together with her longtime collaborator, Dr. Evan Dellon, a study examining naturally shed teeth as a novel biomarker for understanding the role of early life exposures in the development of EoE.
