Workshop: Clinical Genomics in Inflammatory Bowel Disease - 25th April 2023

A proportion of patients with Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) may have a known genetic cause. For those exceptionally rare conditions, the NHS has commissioned genomic testing in specific patient groups. The successful implementation and progression of clinical genomics for IBD requires multi-disciplinary care, specialist knowledge and establishment of networks. Within this workshop, hosted by the monogenic IBD team from the Central and South Genomic Medicine Service Alliance, we aim to discuss clinical care for these patients, practical implementation of clinical genomics and discuss specific monogenic cases. This workshop is targeted at paediatric gastroenterologists, trainees, nurse specialists, immunologists, clinical geneticists, paediatricians with an interest in GI disorders and adult gastroenterologists.

Professor Satish Keshav

Satish Keshav, a lynchpin of the TGU and a fine colleague and mentor to many in the Unit died unexpectedly on Wednesday 23rd January. The sudden loss of Satish is tragic for his family and for all of us who were lucky enough to be his friends. In due course we will post an obituary and some memories of his work.

Dietary Fibre Metabolite Helps Immune System Fight Invasive Bacteria

Macrophages treated with the short-chain fatty acid butyrate – a by-product of dietary fibre breakdown - are better equipped to fight bacteria in the gut, report researchers from the Kennedy Institute and the Translational Gastroenterology Unit. These findings could lead to new strategies to restore gut health in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
