    About

    Shameer Mehta is a Consultant Gastroenterologist at University College London Hospital and Honorary Associate Professor at University College London. He has a special interest in intestinal failure, clinical nutrition, inflammatory bowel disease and pelvic radiation disease.

    He trained at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals in London before undergoing higher specialist training in North East London. He then undertook a combined fellowship in medical education and basic science research at Queen Mary University of London and the Blizard Institute. During this time he became a fellow of the Higher Education Academy in recognition of his postgraduate teaching work. His MD in basic science research has examined the role of microRNAs in the control of epithelial to mesenchymal transition and the development of intestinal fibrosis in patients with Crohn’s disease.

    Shameer’s principle clinical role is within the Intestinal Failure Service at UCLH, one of the largest in the UK. He works within a multidisciplinary team to provide high quality and timely care to patients with complex nutritional needs and all types of intestinal failure. In addition, he has developed expertise in caring for patients with complex inflammatory bowel disease as well as those experiencing gastrointestinal symptoms as a consequence of previous cancer treatment. Shameer is committed to service development and is the Clinical Lead for the Trust Nutrition and Hydration Strategy Group, a task and action committee concerned with improving nutritional provision for patients, visitors and staff.

    His research interests include the role of malnutrition and nutritional care in inflammatory bowel disease, intestinal-failure associated liver disease and pelvic radiation disease. He undertakes a wide range of research studies including basic science, translational, clinical and patient-focused work including the impact of lifestyle on disease and vice versa. He has given multiple national and international talks in these fields and continues to publish in peer-reviewed journals.

    He is also actively involved in teaching and education. He is an accredited trainer for the ESPEN Clinical Nutrition Diploma, co-chairs a module on the UCL MSc in Clinical Nutrition and Public Health, sits on the organising committee of the UCLp Clinical Nutrition Course and leads on the preparation and delivery of teaching courses aimed at clinical nurse specialists, dieticians and pharmacists.
