  • Biography icon plus

    Professor Williams is Director of the Institute of Hepatology, London and Medical Director of the Foundation for Liver Research, a UK registered charity. He holds an Honorary Consultant Hepatology position in King’s College Hospital.

    The Institute of Hepatology is an independent research institute funded and managed by the Foundation for Liver Research, a charity set up by Professor Williams in 1974. It has affiliate status to the King’s College London and King’s College Hospital. Between 1996 and 2010 Professor Williams established a major research Institute at University College London and built a major clinical service in hepatology at University College Hospital. During that time he was also responsible for setting up The Liver centre at The London Clinic. In his current position he remains close to the world renowned Institute of Liver Studies at King’s College Hospital which he started from scratch as a liver unit in 1966. For 30 years he was Director, building it to become one of the largest clinical and research liver units worldwide. He was responsible, together with Professor Sir Roy Calne, for the early pioneering start of liver transplants in the UK.

    He is a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences, London and Royal College of Physician where he was Clinical Vice President and Director of the International Office. He is a recipient of numerous honorary fellowships, medals and prizes including the American Society of Transplantation Senior Achievement Award in 2004, a Hans Popper Lifetime Achievement Award in 2008, the Distinguished Service Award of the International Liver Transplant Society in 2011, and in 2013 the Distinguished Achievement Award of the American Association for Study of Liver Disease. Since 2013 he has been Chairman of the Lancet Commission into Liver Disease in the UK which, with its body of experts and its annual reports and Parliamentary meetings, has addressed the main lifestyle causes of liver disease in the country, namely alcohol, viral hepatitis and obesity.

    His main clinical and research interests are in acute and chronic liver failure, liver support devices, liver transplantation, complications or cirrhosis and management of viral hepatitis.

    Professor Williams has wide experience of providing expert medical legal reports and can be contacted through his office at the Institute of Hepatology.

    His 5 years initial training in hepatology was with the late Professor Dame Sheila Sherlock, doyenne of hepatology at the time. Following that he has been in full time clinical and research work in liver disease, with his first appointment as consultant at King’s College Hospital in August 1966.
