UEG Week Congress Review

UEG Week Prize Winners
UEG Lifetime Achievement Award
Peter Milla - UEG Lifetime Achievement Awardee
Peter Milla was awarded the distinguished UEG Lifetime Achievement Award
at UEG Week Virtual 2020.

"I fell into the field of Gastroenterology
quite serendipitously. In fact, I
always wanted to be a zoologist but,
unfortunately, I failed to gain a place at
university to read zoology. Upon advice
from my masters at school, I changed
direction to pursue a degree in medicine
- the rest is history! Being in the right
place at the right time, my career as a
gastroenterologist really took off.
My interests predominantly lie in
gastrointestinal structure and function
where I have increasingly used advances
in technology to observe and measure
in real time changes in tissue structure
and physiological function in vivo in the
human bowel. What fascinates me most
16

about the human digestive system is that
it contains all the systems that you see
throughout the body in one single organ
- the gut. The last piece of work I was
involved with was on IBS, which observed
the interaction between food and the gut
resulting in IBS symptoms..
When reflecting upon what the future
holds for gastroenterology, I am
confident in my belief that the many
different advances that are currently
underway offer limitless opportunities
to revolutionise the field. We as
gastroenterologists, must grasp these
opportunities and make the most of them.
Although I am now retired, it is not to
say that I have lost interest. I really enjoy

seeing what young gastroenterologists are
doing and how they will go on to achieve
great things. It is important that we
nurture their ambition and support them
on their journey, just as I was supported,
so that they may realise their potential.
I am really grateful to receive such a
prestigious award. I would very much like
to thank my family, friends and the many
colleagues that I have had the privilege of
working with during my career that have
made this award possible. An enormous -
"Thank you."
