Chris Probert is a Senior Lecturer at University of Bristol and Honorary Consultant at Bristol Royal Infirmary.

He read medicine at University of Birmingham and trained in gastroenterology under John Mayberry, Ken Heaton, and Professor Alan Read.

His first research fellowship, in Epidemiology of IBD, led to an MD. Later, as a BDF Research Fellow, he trained in molecular biology and mucosal immunology with Rick Blumberg in Boston.

His clinical interest is inflammatory bowel disease, and, latterly, nutrition. His research interests remain mucosal immunology and the epidemiology of IBD.

What car do you drive?
