Brian S. Robinson, MD, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine. A gastrointestinal pathologist, Dr. Robinson's clinical focus is in gastrointestinal and hepatic pathology. He closely collaborates with the gastrointestinal oncology care team at Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University.

Dr. Robinson is a member of the Cell and Molecular Biology Research Program at Winship Cancer Institute.


Dr. Robinson earned his MD and completed both his residency and fellowship in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia.


Dr. Robinson's lab is focused on understanding how developmental signaling pathways, particularly ROS-related signaling pathways, influence intestinal epithelial homeostasis and contribute to tumorigenesis. Moreover, he is interested in identifying mechanisms by which host microbial populations activate these cellular pathways, as well as, identifying novel effectors of tissue restitution in metazoans.

He recently received the Clinician Scientist Developmental Award from the American Cancer Society to investigate a novel proliferative checkpoint between the redox-sensitive transcription factor Nrf2 and proliferative phenotypes in the murine intestine. His lab utilizes a wide variety of cellular, molecular, genetic, and translational techniques, including using the model organism Drosophila to identify conserved cellular pathways across metazoans.
