Her clinical practice is based at the University of North Carolina Inflammatory Bowel Diseases Center. Dr. Long’s interests include research on prevention of complications of inflammatory bowel disease and women’s health. She is currently an investigator for the CCFA Partners cohort, a prospective cohort focusing upon patient reported outcomes that includes over 14,000 patients living with inflammatory bowel disease. Dr. Long has contributed numerous peer-reviewed publications, book chapters, and review articles to the medical literature. She currently serves as an invited reviewer for journals such as Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, Gastroenterology, and the American Journal of Gastroenterology. She is Associate Editor for the IBD section of the American Journal of Gastroenterology. Dr. Long is a member of the American College of Gastroenterology, where she serves on the Research Committee. She is a member of the American Gastroenterological Association, where she serves on the maintenance of certification committee. She is also a member of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America, where she chairs the Professional Education Committee.

The Division serves as the clinical home for the Center for Gastrointestinal Biology and Disease, one of 17 federally-funded centers focusing on research in GI diseases. The Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology runs 3 fellowship training programs: a clinical training program, a clinical outcomes and epidemiology training program, and a basic science training program. The latter two programs are funded by the National Institutes of Health, making the division one of the few in the U.S. with federally funded training programs in both clinical and basic science. Using unique resources including our nationally-acclaimed School of Public Health, the Center for Gastrointestinal Biology and Disease, and UNC’s NIH-funded Clinical and Translational Sciences Award Center, the Division provides an enriched environment to launch an academic career. Advanced training fellowships are offered in endoscopy, liver diseases, and inflammatory bowel disease.
