Professor Kenneth McColl obtained his Medical Degree from the University of Glasgow in 1974, and then undertook training in both general internal medicine and gastroenterology. In 1978, he was awarded an MD with Honors for his research relating to bilirubin metabolism.

In 1980, Professor McColl was awarded a Research Council Travelling Fellowship and spent one year in the University of California, San Francisco, USA. He was later appointed Consultant Physician in Gastroenterology in the Western Infirmary, Glasgow, in 1984 and Professor of Gastroenterology in 1992.

Professor McColl is a member of many distinguished scientific organizations and is on the Editorial Boards of a number of international journals. He is a member of a number of national and international committees and is Chairman of a National Working Party for producing guidelines on the management of Helicobacter pylori infection in Scotland.

In addition to his clinical duties, Professor McColl is Director of a research team, and has published more than 400 clinical and scientific papers. He has undertaken extensive research relating to H. pylori infection and dyspeptic disease. Current research interests include the pathophysiology of gastro-esophageal reflux disease, Barrett's esophagus, and cancer of the gastro-esophageal junction.

What made you decide to become a gastroenterologist?
Circumstances. I was fortunate to serve as a junior doctor in an academic unit under two Knights of the Realm, Sir Abraham Goldberg and Sir Thomas J. Thomson. The former was renowned for his research into hepatic metabolism, and the latter for his skills in clinical gastroenterology. It was therefore almost inevitable that I should become a gastroenterologist.
Who was the teacher you admired the most?
None of them and all of them. I think every teacher has something unique to offer, and it is a matter of trying to glean what you can from whom you can.
Which is your best research paper?
My next one. I am glad to say that I still believe that my next paper will be the most important. Once I stop believing that then it will be time to hang up the research boots.
What is the most important fact that you have discovered?
Probably recognizing the profound effects which H. pylori infection can exert on gastric secretory function. I think this is an important key to understanding the outcomes of H. pylori infection.
What is your best place in the world?
A little village called Plockton, which is in the North West of Scotland near the Isle of Skye. When I am there, I feel further away than in any other place in the world.
What car do you drive?
I drive the epitome of the middle-class family man - a Volvo Estate.
Why did you get in involved in GastroHep.com?
Because Roy Pounder kept sending me e-mails asking me to complete my profile!
