A/Prof Mark Danta
I am a specialist gastroenterologist and hepatologist with the Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at St Vincent's Hospital, Sydney. I am also an Associate Professor in Medicine at the University of New South Wales.
Medically, I treat general gastrointestinal and liver disorders. This includes: screening of gastrointestinal and liver tumours, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD, Crohn's and Ulcerative colitis), coeliac disease, hepatitis, chronic liver disease, and cirrhosis. I provide services including colonoscopy, endoscopy, and Fibroscan (non-invasive liver biopsy).
Academically, my research interests are the microbiome and gut health, cirrhosis and its complications, and liver cancer. I run several research programs in these areas from my program in the Centre of Applied Medical Research at St Vincent’s Hospital.
See my list of research papers which appear in national and international peer-reviewed publications.
