He has a BSc in Clinical Biochemistry from Salford University, an MSC in Clinical Biochemistry from Surrey University and a DPhil from Sussex University. He has an interest in biomarkers for gastrointestinal and liver diseases in particular. He started working on fecal calprotectin in 1997 soon after it had been discovered. He is the co-author of more than 200 peer-reviewed papers, 35 reviews/book chapters and the book Liver Disease and Laboratory Medicine published by the Association of Clinical Biochemistry and Laboratory Medicine.

    Abstract

    Fecal elastase-1 – a biomarker for pancreatic exocrine insufficiency (EPI) continues to gain traction as an ideal biomarker for assessing EPI. This presentation will include a review of the physiology and function of the pancreas, epidemiology and prevalence of disease, current clinical guidelines along with new and existing testing options for pancreatic insufficiency.
