Gastroenterology and Hepatology

Nottingham Digestive Diseases Centre (NDDC) comprises of one of the largest group in the country of academics, National Health Service (NHS) associates and support staff encompassing the breadth and depth of gastroenterology, hepatology, surgery, endoscopy, pathology and radiology.

Our senior faculty (including 6 full Professors and 7 Associate professors) and early career researchers have breadth of expertise ranging from molecular biology, microbiology, immunology, gastrointestinal (GI) & metabolic physiology, magnetic resonance imaging, diagnostic and database epidemiology through to clinical trials and implementation science.

Our goal is to discover novel mechanisms underlying the health and disorders related to the digestive system. We collaborate with patients, volunteers, industry partners, regulators and policy makers to develop innovative tests, devices and interventions to prevent and treat diseases.

NDDC hosts the GI and Liver Disorders theme of National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre (BRC). This experimental medicine and early translational research programme has achieved successful funding in four consecutive nation-wide competitive cycles through 2008 to 2027.
