Professional profile

I have been a Consultant Gastroenterologist at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge since 2001 and clinical lead for gastroenterology since 2004. I have a particular interest and expertise in diagnostic gastroenterology, including endoscopy and colonoscopy, and management of Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, coeliac disease and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). With a caring and friendly manner in the clinic and outside, I undertake all private diagnostic endoscopy / colonoscopy myself and have extensive experience of the full range of medical and dietary therapies for gastroenterological disease.

I undertake all endoscopy myself, and by working closely with colleagues in radiology, pathology, surgery and dietetics, I ensure your appropriate investigation and treatment whatever the cause of your symptoms. I have a particular clinical and research interest in Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, for which I lead internationally renowned research groups focused on determinants of causation and disease course.

I have been director and clinical lead for Gastroenterology at Addenbrooke's Hospital for the last 12 years and am actively involved as chair of the the BSG IBD Clinical Research Group and chair of the UK IBD Genetics Consortium.

Dr Parkes holds a Bronze National Clinical Excellence Award in recognition of his services to the NHS.
Research interests include new therapies in gastrointestinal disease and the molecular genetic basis of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Dr Parkes heads an internationally renowned IBD research group and chairs the UK IBD genetics research consortium. He has played a leading role in several landmark studies identifying multiple susceptibility genes for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. This work has mainly been funded by the Wellcome Trust, the MRC and Crohn's and Colitis UK, and has resulted in a large number of publications and articles in high impact journals including Nature, Cell and Nature Genetics. He has also authored chapters for many textbooks, including the Oxford Textbook of Medicine which is widely regarded at the doctors bible, and is regularly invited to teach and lecture at home and at conferences in Europe, the USA and Australia.
