What we do

From Professor Guru Aithal, Head of Division:

We conduct research to make novel observations regarding mechanisms underlying digestive health and diseases.

Our experimental medicine programme encompasses basic and translational research from discovery to clinical application and dissemination.

We collaborate with patients, clinicians, basic scientists and industry partners to develop innovative tests, devices and interventions that improve digestive health and treat digestive diseases.

We create an environment where researchers learn, develop and respond creatively to an ever changing clinical context. 



We have almost 150 PhD students.



Our research includes clinical trials, diagnostic studies, population studies and translation of laboratory medicine and surgery into clinical intervention.
