Narci Teoh graduated from the University of Sydney with MBBS at First Class Honours in 1993 and was conferred FRACP and PhD in 2000 and 2003 respectively. She is current Professor of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at The Australian National University, and a clinician-researcher who provides specialist care to individuals affected by digestive and liver disorders. She is active in the education of medical colleagues, students and the Australian community in the prevention of gastroenterological and liver diseases, especially against related cancers.
Narci’s translational research pursuits pertain to the conditions which predispose to cirrhosis and liver cancer. Using experimental models, she continues on a (long) quest to discover the ideal therapeutic protective strategy against ischaemia-reperfusion injury, a phenomenon which complicates liver surgery and transplantation. Her research to date has been funded by external competitive grants, particularly the NHMRC.
She is President 2017 - 2019 of the Gastroenterological Society of Australia (GESA), our national clinical and scientific peak body in Gastroenterology and Hepatology and Australia’s prime advocacy group for patients affected by these health issues.
