Queensland’s clinical leadership role in the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in Digestive Health

10 September 2020

On 9 September, the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) $2.5M Centre for Research Excellence (CRE) in Digestive Health was officially launched, with Queensland playing a critical role in driving clinical research in the CRE. The CRE in Digestive Health will advance the understanding, identification and treatment of chronic, unexplained gastrointestinal (GI) disorders, which are a costly burden for many Australians. Based in Brisbane, Newcastle, Sydney and Melbourne, the Centre will involve both national and international collaborations from world-leading gastrointestinal researchers, including:
  • Professor Gerald Holtmann (Princess Alexandra Hospital Brisbane & University of Queensland)
  • Professor Mark Morrison (University of Queensland Diamantina Institute),
  • Professor Jeff Coombes (University of Queensland).
For an insight into how their research will improve the lives of patients and potentially lead to cures for debilitating GI diseases, please see this video featuring Professor Gerald Holtmann and Dr Ayesha Shah.
