About Amy Tsou, M.D., Ph.D.

Dr. Amy Tsou is an Instructor in Pediatrics at Weill Cornell Medicine and an Assistant Attending Pediatrician at New York-Presbyterian Phyllis and David Komansky Children's Hospital at Weill Cornell Medical Center. She is also affiliated with the Jill Roberts Institute for Research in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).

After receiving a B.S. in Bioengineering at Rice University, Dr. Tsou earned her MD and PhD degrees from the University of Pennsylvania. Her thesis research was in the field of microbiology, and she studied the intestinal pathogen, Vibrio cholerae. She then trained in the Boston Combined Residency Program at Boston Children's Hospital and Boston Medical Center and completed the Harvard Medical School Fellowship in Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition at Boston Children's Hospital.

While Dr. Tsou cares for children with a wide range of gastrointestinal disorders, she has a specific interest in IBD from both a clinical and research perspective. The goal of her current research program is to understand how the community of bacteria in our intestines, also known as the gut microbiota, protects against or contributes to the development of intestinal disease. Her research utilizes both mouse models and patient samples, and she is collaborating with other institutions both within the US and abroad to study patients with very-early-onset IBD and primary immunodeficiencies.
