Professor Fred Gorelick

Professor Gorelick trained in Gastroenterology at Yale and after clinical training be began basic science training with Dr James Jamieson. During that period he described calcium-calmodulin dependent protein kinase II and subsequently worked with Dr Paul Greengard at Rockefeller University to examine the enzyme's mechanism of activation, a response critical to memory. 

Professor Gorelick's later work has focused on the mechanisms of acute pancreatitis and how digestive enzymes, such as trysin, are activated within the pancreas during this disease. Dr Gorelick sees patients with gastrointestinal diseases at the VAMC in West Haven Connecticut. He is also the Deputy Director for the Yale Physician Scientist program and directs a year-long course for the group that links basic science to clinical disease. His laboratory at the VA studies the molecular mechanisms related to acute pancreatitis with a goal of developing tools that prevent or lessen disease.
