About

  • Biography icon plus

    Dr Jude A Oben - a Clinician Scientist - holds Consultant appointments in Gastroenterology and Hepatology at Guy’s & St Thomas’ Hospital, and in Hepatology at the Royal Free Hospital, London. He is also a Senior Lecturer in Hepatology at University College London, Institute for Liver and Digestive Health. Dr Oben has a Ph.D in immuno-pharmacology from UCL and studied medicine at Oxford, with a stint at Stanford University, Palo Alto, USA, as a research fellow in Immunology. After Oxford, initial post-graduate medical training was at the Hammersmith hospital. During his specialist registrar training he re-orientated his research career with some 2 years as a post-doctoral fellow at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, USA, under the mentorship of Professor Anna Mae Diehl. Dr Oben’s work at Johns Hopkins combined his previous interest in neuroscience with liver medicine and he discovered that the autonomic nervous system regulates liver repair through actions on liver stem cells and liver stellate cells, in the context of obesity induced liver disease. On the back of a very productive period at Johns Hopkins he was awarded a Wellcome Trust Fellowship funding stream on returning to London.

    Dr Oben currently leads a productive research group at the UCL Institute for Liver and Digestive Health, Royal Free Hospital and continues to juggle clinical and basic science research with clinical practice in Gastroenterology and Hepatology. His research focuses on obesity induced liver disease (non-alcoholic fatty liver disease), liver regeneration and mechanism of fibrosis in Crohn’s disease. Dr Oben is a co-founder and Trustee of the Obesity Action Campaign recently launched at the House of Lords: the primary aim being to raise political and public awareness of obesity and its deleterious health consequences. He is an invited member of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Obesity.
