About this event

About the meeting

Gut Reaction is the Health Data Research Hub for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). IBD includes Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Together, these conditions affect around 500,000 people in the UK. They cause recurring abdominal symptoms, which need long-term treatment and often major surgery. As result, IBD can significantly affect the lives of those who live with it.

Please join us for an update on Gut Reaction's achievements over the last 18 months, alongside our vision for the future. This event will feature presentations from key team members, with an opportunity for audience questions.

Speakers include:

  • John Bradley, Hub Director, Gut Reaction
  • Mark Avery, Operational Lead, Gut Reaction
  • Neil Walker, Chief Data Officer, Gut Reaction
  • Victoria Higgins, Senior Director, UK Academic Alliance Management, GSK
  • Chris Larminie, Senior Scientific Director Human Genetics, GSK
  • Meg Ehm, Senior Director Human Genetics, GSK
  • Alex Sazonovs, Researcher, Sanger Institute
  • Sarah Sleet, CEO, Crohn’s & Colitis UK
  • Tudor Besleaga, Patient representative

About the Hubs

Since launching in October 2019, seven Health Data Research Hubs have demonstrated that their uniquely collaborative, cross-sector and fast-paced method of working delivers results that make a difference to patients’ lives. Led by Health Data Research UK (HDR UK), in the past year the Hubs have also pivoted to support the UK’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, enabling research in areas such as infection rates, vaccine rollout, and understanding the impact of COVID-19 on specific disease areas.

In May and June 2021, HDR UK will be hosting a series of seminars showcasing each Hub in detail.
