Gastro Lab Team

Chronic gut diseases such as gastroparesis, irritable bowel syndrome, and gastroesophageal reflux have a large impact on the physical and mental health of individuals. Dietary and medical interventions are often ineffective and symptoms can be severe and occur on a daily basis.

Your donation will provide direct support to:

  • Gastroparesis research in the field of regenerative medicine – lab grown gastric pace-marker cells to restore stomach function: a cure for gastroparesis.
  • Unlocking the potential of the gut microbiome – our dedicated faecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) facility spearheads FMT clinical trials in NSW Australia.
  • Medical device innovations – Applying cutting-edge technologies in computer AI and smart sensing to solve unmet clinical needs in gut disorder diagnosis and management.
  • Mentoring the next generation of young clinicians and researchers as they pursue their passions in improving gut health.

By supporting the Western Sydney University’s GI Motility Research initiative, you will support its vision to deal head-on with this important health issue affecting 1 in 5 Australians which is placing enormous strain on families, loved-ones, businesses and the health system.
