Rebecca M. Minter, M.D., is an Assistant Professor of Surgery in the Section of General Surgery based full time at the Ann Arbor Veteran's Administration Medical Center.   Dr. Minter graduated magna cum laude from the University of Denver in 1992.   She received her M.D. degree in 1996, from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School and went on to general surgery residency training at the University of Florida College of Medicine.   Dr. Minter completed a two year research fellowship in molecular biology and gene therapy in burns and trauma in 2000, and completed her general surgery residency in June of 2003.   She joined the faculty at the University of Michigan shortly thereafter in July of 2003.

Dr. Minter's clinical practice is focused in the areas of general and gastrointestinal surgery, including laparoscopy and surgical endoscopy.   She has a particular interest in the management and treatment of benign and neoplastic diseases of the esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, rectum, and pancreas.

Dr. Minter's current research efforts are in the area of liver injury and inflammation.   Specifically, she is investigating the inflammatory profile present in cholestatic liver disease complicated by infection, and using gene therapy approaches to modulate this response to improve outcome.   Her past research efforts have centered upon a recombinant adenoviral gene therapy delivery system for human and viral IL-10 for the treatment of sepsis and ARDS.
