The division enjoys an international reputation for its pioneering work in colorectal cancer screening, but this is just one of a number of areas of research.

Current areas of research include:

1) Screening for colorectal cancer, early detection of adenomas and cancers and the use of new prognostic markers.

2)Enhanced recovery after gastrointestinal surgery, optimising intravenous fluid delivery for surgical patients.

3) Pharmacological treatments for anal fissures.

The Division of Gastrointestinal Surgery has excellent laboratory facilities for measuring gastrointestinal function including ambulatory systems for the upper and lower GI tract.

The department also carries out extensive organ bath work using in vitro preparations for pharmacological studies of sphincter and bowel. We have facilities for molecular biology and functional gastrointestinal imaging.

A list of publications and further details on the work can be obtained through the Wolfson Digestive Centre website and the University of Nottingham website.
