Dr McLaughlin trained in Medicine at Guy’s, King’s and St. Thomas’ Medical Schools, qualifying in 2000. During his postgraduate training he undertook two and half years of clinical research at St. Mark’s and St. Thomas’ Hospitals London. His research investigated the hypothesis that a bacterial dysbiosis is fundamental to the inflammatory process which occurs in up to half of patients with ulcerative colitis who undergo restorative proctocolectomy. Further work included developing new treatment strategies for pre-pouch ileitis and pouchitis in patients with ulcerative colitis. He was awarded an MD from Imperial College London in 2010.
