Biography

Seema Sharma Aceves, MD, PhD, is a Professor of Pediatrics and Medicine in the Division of Allergy and Immunology at the University of California (UC), San Diego, and director of the Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disorders Clinic at Rady Children’s Hospital–San Diego. She also holds the MRD Endowed Chair in Pediatrics at UC San Diego. Dr. Aceves earned her MD and PhD as part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded Medical Scientist Training Program at UC San Diego after doing research with Nobel Laureate Edward B.

As an expert in eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), Dr. Aceves has had her laboratory work funded by the NIH and other affiliates. Her pivotal findings included the role of remodeling in the EoE esophagus and the role of the rigid extracellular environment in changing esophageal structural cell function. Dr. Aceves is the principal investigator on a number of multi- and single-center EoE trials, including those conducted by the Consortium for Gastrointestinal Eosinophil Researchers, where she serves as Chair of the Scientific Advisory Committee.
