In a collaborative approach between the TRI and the Department of Gastroenterology & Hepatology at the Princess Alexandra Hospital and other partners such as the Mater Medical Research Institute/Mater Hospital a strong research program into gastrointestinal and liver disease has been established.

The research program brings together researchers, scientists and clinicians to better understand the pathophysiology of a range of gastrointestinal and liver diseases aiming to prevent or more effectively treat highly prevalent disorders of the digestive tract.
