Supporting the

Neuroendocrine Cancer Community

I am Dr. Raj Srirajaskanthan, I work as a gastroenterologist and have a specialist interest in Neuroendocrine cancers. I work in London and have been a Trustee of the NCUK for the last 3 years. Also I am chair of the clinical practice committee of United Kingdom and Ireland NET Society. In addition to the clinical service we run at Kings College Hospital we run a research programme looking at different aspects of these tumours. The purpose is to help improve patient outcomes and quality of life.

I graduated from Guy’s, King’s and St. Thomas’ medical school with his medical degree and an intercalated BSc and undertook my post-graduate training in hospitals in Oxford, London and South East England. I am accomplished in endoscopy and colonoscopy and have attended a number of advanced endoscopy courses. I was awarded the British Society of Gastroenterology travel fellowship to The Medical University of South Carolina, USA. In 2010 I was awarded an MD (Res) from University College London following breakthrough clinical research into neuroendocrine tumours and I am still actively involved in research and published in a number of journals.

I have written and edited three textbooks on liver disease and neuroendocrine tumours. My special interests are Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), gastroesophageal reflux disease, peptic ulcer, hepatology including viral hepatitis, endoscopy and bowel cancer screening (including colonoscopy and polypectomy) and neuroendocrine tumours.
