Clinical/Research Interests

My research interests include the utility of biomarkers (in particular serologic tests) and further to this, serotype-genotype-phenotype correlations in inflammatory bowel disease; predictors of response to IBD therapy, the use of infliximab in ulcerative colitis, specifically the association of trough serum infliximab levels and antibody formation to clinical outcome; non invasive measures of disease activity in ulcerative colitis, and, meta-analytic techniques to determine efficacy of therapeutic interventions in inflammatory bowel disease.
