You can become involved in ongoing research into Barrett’s Oesophagus. For more information, please contact us.
2011 was a very busy year for Barrett's Oesophagus Campaign with development of a collaborative study between UKBOR (United Kingdom Barrett's Oesophagus Registry) & Harvard University (Professor Raj Goyal), and with funding achieved for both arms of the study. At this time formal registration of the study for UCL sponsorship has been achieved, Data Protection Registration and insurance confirmed and approval by the Research Ethics Committee is now being sought under IRAS (Integrated Research Application System). In addition to this a part-time Research Fellow with a funded training post has been appointed to conduct a case –control study on risk factors for development of adenocarcinoma (AC) in Barrett's for submission for an MD thesis. This training post will be based at the Royal Free hospital, London and will be supervised by Dr Christine Caygill and UKBOR's Executive Director, Professor Anthony Watson.
