A/Professor Avi Lemberg
I was appointed Head of Paediatric Gastroenterology at Sydney Children’s Hospital in 2009 and am also Director of the Children’s Inflammatory Bowel Diseases Clinic (IBD) at The Sydney Children’s Hospital. I have extensive clinical and research experience in paediatric inflammatory bowel conditions and other gastrointestinal disorders.
In 2004, I was the inaugural recipient of the Sydney Children’s Hospital Travelling Scholarship to undertake advanced training in Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition at the British Columbia Children’s Hospital, Vancouver, Canada. I subsequently returned to Australia and received the GESA Young Investigator Award where I was invited to present my research work at an International IBD Meeting in Mallaga, Spain.
I have clinical research interests in IBD, Probiotics, Gut Bacteria, Coeliac disease and Eosinophilic Oesophagitis (EoE)/Gut allergy and I am examining clinical trends in patients with these illnesses. I was promoted to Conjoint A/Professor at University of New South Wales in 2013. I will have published more than 80 peer reviewed publications and book chapters by mid-2015.
