Gastrointestinal Epidemiology

One of the UK’s leading gastrointestinal epidemiology research groups describing the epidemiology, aetiology and consequences of malignant and non-malignant acute and chronic gastrointestinal disease.

GI and Liver Diseases Medical and Surgical Research To conduct international quality research relating to gastrointestinal and liver disease including clinical trials and population studies and to translate laboratory medicine and surgery into clinical interventions which improve the care and lives of our patients.
GI MRI Research Group To investigate gastrointestinal (GI) function, both physiological and pathological, by developing and using novel magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods.
Molecular Pathology Group To develop an understanding of the molecular basis of neoplastic and inflammatory gastrointestinal disease and use this to improve patient care.
Nottingham Digestive Diseases Centre Biomedical Research Unit To take the most promising basic biomedical research breakthroughs and translate them into patient benefit. We focus on the infections, inflammation and consequences in the GI tract and liver.
Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre Embeds discovery science within three focused translational research areas: Gastrointestinal and live infections, disorders of gastrointestinal physiology and liver metabolism and MRI methodologies.
Nottingham Molecular Pathology Node To train the next generation of molecular pathologists by meeting NHS/industry needs in the genomic medicine era.
