UEG Rising Star in Gastroenterology and
Hepatology
Prakash Ramachandran
"My inspiration to pursue a
career in Gastroenterology and
Hepatology can be attributed to
the excellent teachers and mentors
I have had along my learning
journey. I have always been
fascinated by gastroenterology and
hepatology ever since undertaking
my undergraduate research project
20 years ago.
I find the multi-system nature
of liver diseases particularly
engaging, bringing new challenges
every day and continuing
to stimulate my clinical and
academic interests. Despite
the significant global burden of
disease, there remain a lot of
unanswered questions about the
pathophysiology of liver diseases.
This has fuelled my passion
for research, to improve our
understanding of the cellular and
molecular mechanisms driving
disease progression and identify
new therapeutic approaches to
treat patients and improve quality
of life.
The advent of high dimensionality
multiomics technologies are

transforming our understanding
of pathogenic pathways in liver
diseases and have identified
several potential novel therapeutic
targets. We are now in a strong
position to start functionally
testing these pathways, to
determine therapeutic efficacy and
define tractable new treatment
approaches. These future studies
are essential in bridging the
translational gap between basic
biology and much needed new
therapies for patients.
Being selected to receive the UEG
Rising Star award for 2020 is a
real honour. Previous winners
have produced some of the
most important recent research
developments in Gastroenterology
and Hepatology, so joining
this illustrious group of award
winners is truly humbling. One of
the great joys of research is that
it is a genuine team effort, so I
must thank everybody who has
helped me over the years and
contributed to this success. I hope
that I can continue to contribute to
important new research over the
years to come."
