    Professor Laurence Lovat is a leading Gastroenterologist working in the heart of London. 

    See his website: 

    He has a special interest in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of upper gastrointestinal cancer (cancer of the food pipe and stomach) and diseases affecting the food pipe such as indigestion, reflux and Barrett's disease. He also treats patients with irritable bowel syndrome and performs endoscopies (a non-surgical procedure to examine a patient's digestive tract).

    Professor Lovat received his medical degree from University College London Hospitals in 1987. As part of his training, he gained a first class honours degree in Nutrition. He qualified as a Gastroenterologist in 1998. Professor Lovat was appointed consultant Gastroenterologist at University College London Hospitals (NHS) a year later. 

    Professor Lovat is passionate about research and driving advances in his field. Early in his career, he was awarded a prestigious research training award and completed a PhD in his field. He was appointed as the first Head of the newly established Research Department for Tissue and Energy at University College London and was awarded his professorship in 2014 based on the quality of his research into complications of acid reflux disease and minimally invasive treatment to prevent and treat oesophageal cancer. He has published his research in leading scientific journals (e.g., Nature). Professor Lovat is also chief investigator for a national research project (the UK National HALO Patient Registry).
