Dr. Samadder received his medical degree from the University of Toronto (Canada) where he also completed his internal medicine residency. He subsequently completed a fellowship in Gastroenterology at the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, MI) and an Advanced Endoscopy fellowship at the Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN). During his gastroenterology fellowship, Dr. Samadder also completed his Master’s in Healthcare Research at the University of Michigan Medical School and obtained specialized training in Cancer Genetics at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center under the mentorship of Dr. Stephen Gruber. He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Physician and Surgeons in Canada.

His research focuses on the genetic epidemiology and outcomes of patients with hereditary colorectal and pancreatic cancer.

Dr. Samadder has published and presented at national meetings on the increased risk of colorectal cancer associated with various genetic, lifestyle factors (smoking, alcohol consumption), chronic diseases (diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease), opportunities for chemoprevention (NSAID and statin use), famililal risk of colorectal cancer in families and the effectiveness of colonoscopy for colorectal cancer prevention. In 2012 and 2013 his research was presented at the Presidential Plenary Sessions at both the American College of Gastroenterology meeting and Digestive Diseases Week meeting. He has recieved the ACG-Olympus award in Colon Cancer Prevention research in both 2010 and 2012.

Dr. Samadder’s special interests are in the areas of hereditary gastrointestinal cancer and endoscopic oncology. He performs both general and therapeutic endoscopy (including EUS, ERCP and small bowel Balloon Enteroscopy).

His research focuses on the early detection and prevention of colorectal cancer.

His studies have assessed the increased risk of colorectal cancer associated with various genetic, lifestyle factors (smoking, alcohol consumption) and chronic diseases (diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease) and opportunities for chemoprevention (NSAID and statin use). He has recently been awarded Career Development Awards from both the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) and the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG). Recent research projects have been presented at the Presidential Plenary Sessions at both the American College of Gastroenterology meeting (October 2012) and Digestive Diseases Week (May 2013).
