Vincent Lamy was born on 6 January 1950 in Gitega, Burundi, Central Africa. He graduated from the Brussels Free University Medical School, Belgium in 1975 and also worked under Michel Cremer at the Erasme Hospital. Working with one of the pioneers of digestive endoscopy was very exciting for him.

Dr Lamy also worked in Hamburg (Nib Soehendra) and Amsterdam (Kees Huibregtse) to become familiar with the management of upper GI bleeding and biliary-pancreatic obstruction.

His clinical interests include sedation for digestive endoscopy, upper GI bleeding, biliary-pancreatic endoscopy, and Helicobacter pylori management.

For the last 15 years Dr Lamy has been involved in scientific and professional gastrointestinal activities in Belgium and Europe. He is an international member of the AGA, the ESGE and the 'Cercle André Lambling'. He also served as past secretary and president of the Gastroenterology Section of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) for 12 years.

Dr Lamy was recently co-opted as a member of the United European Gastroenterology Federation Public Affairs Committee (UEGF-PAC). He is also involved in CME activities between Africa and Europe.

Currently Dr Lamy works as a consultant at the CHU de Charleroi, Belgium.

He is married and is the father of three lovely daughters.

What made you decide to become a gastroenterologist/hepatologist?
During my medical training I was fascinated by endoscopy and gastroenterology. After my internal medicine residency I decide to become a gastroenterologist. Since 1975 I have been involved in the stream of progresses in therapeutic endoscopy, gastroenterology, and hepatology
Who was the teacher you admired the most?
Michel Cremer taught me endoscopy, but also introduced me to other famous gastroenterologists and surgeons. Guido Tytgat, Peter Cotton, Jean Pierre Benhamou, and others impressed me during my training and practice.
Which research paper influenced you the most?
A letter in the Lancet (1982), from Warren and Marshall, concerning a bug. This showed us that certainty in science is fragile.
What is the most important fact that you have discovered?
In medicine: 'Primum non nocere' remain so important. In digestive endoscopy: the simplest procedures are currently the most effective for the patients. In general: 'Carpe diem'. Don't stress too much, and take time to live.
What is your unfulfilled ambition?
To join all European gastroenterologists in a European GI Association, sharing scientific and professional interests.
What is your greatest regret?
To observe my country being involved in a splitting process whilst Europe is unifying.
How do you relax?
Traveling around Europe discovering my future homeland.
What is your favorite sport?
Scuba diving.
What is your best place in the world?
The small Caribbean island of Bonaire.
What is your favorite film?
One of my favorites is "Mon oncle Benjamin" with Jacques Brel.
What car do you drive?
A VW Sharan. Excellent to travel with the family or to carry my diving equipment.
What is your best electronic 'toy'?
My Psion and my mobile phone.
What book are you reading at the moment?
"Métaphysique des tubes" by Amélie Nothomb.
Why did you get in involved in GastroHep.com?
Roy Pounder has rapidly convinced me that it is a fantastic tool to share information and opinion within the specialty. I also hope that GastroHep.com can help colleagues in countries where scientific and medical information is too scarce and difficult to access.
