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 ano-rectal 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.
