Professor Jørgen Rask-Madsen was born in 1939 in Copenhagen. He qualified in 1966 from the University of Copenhagen, where in 1975 he defended his thesis on transepithelial ion transport and bioelectrical potentials in the human colon. He has published over 400 basic and clinical papers and abstracts covering intestinal transport, clinical pharmacology, peptic ulcer disease, and chronic inflammatory bowel disease.

After training posts, he worked from 1979 to 1998 as a Consultant Gastroenterologist at Odense University Hospital and at the Copenhagen University Hospitals, in Bispebjerg and Hvidovre. In 1999 he was appointed Professor of Medicine/Gastroenterology at the University of Copenhagen and Head of the Department of Gastroenterology at Herlev Hospital.

In the past he has been a member of the Editorial Boards of Gut and European Journal of Clinical Investigation. He is at present a member of the Editorial Boards of the Scandanavian Journal of Gastroenterology, Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics, the European Journal Gastroenterology and Hepatology, the Italian Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, Bailliére´s Clinical Gastroenterology, and the World Journal of Gastroenterology.

He was President of the Danish Society of Gastroenterology in 1992-93, and was appointed Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in London in 1997.

Currently, he is Secretary of the Council of ASNEMGE, a member of the UEGF Council, and Local Organising Committee chairman of UEGW 2005 Copenhagen-Malmoe.
