His interests in gastroenterology brought him to the US to complete a PhD in cancer biology in the Laboratory of Molecular and Cellular Biology at the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, MD.
He then moved to Mount Sinai Medical Center in NYC where he continued working on the biology of cancer cells at the Derald H. Ruttenberg Cancer Center. There, he spent 7 years as a head of a laboratory funded by NIH grants dissecting the molecular mechanisms of cancer growth and genetic transformation.
In 2000, Dr. Fedi decided to return to medical care and completed a residency in Internal Medicine at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx. He then completed a fellowship in Gastroenterology at NY Presbyterian Hospital, Columbia University NY. He had the opportunity there to be trained under Dr. Lightdale and Dr. Stavropoulos and specialize in Barrett’s esophagus and Endoscopic Ultrasound.
