Dr Anthony Hobson
Clinical GI Scientist
I began my training as a GI Clinical Scientist in 1991 at Hope Hospital in Salford, under the tutelage of Mr John Bancewicz and Professor David Thompson. There I completed my training in a broad range of gastrointestinal physiological techniques, measuring pharyngeal, oesophageal, gastric, small bowel and anorectal function.
In 2003, under the supervision of Professor Qasim Aziz and in collaboration with Professor Paul Furlong at Aston University, I gained my PhD from Manchester University, using advanced brain imaging techniques to map oesophageal pain processing regions. I also pioneered the technique of oesophageal cortical evoked potentials for use in phenotyping patients with non-cardiac chest pain and non-erosive reflux disease into specific clinical sub-types.
