Professor Ailsa Hart, Consultant Gastroenterologist at The Physicians' Clinic, was inaugurated as Honorary Skou Professor with the University of Aarhus, Denmark in January 2020.
She delivered her inaugural lecture on 'The management of inflammatory bowel disease: present and future'.
This is a prestigious title with Aarhus University honouring internationally esteemed researchers with a goal of fostering closer ties between elite institutions. The tile was created in honour of Nobel Prize Winner Professor Jens Skou (who discovered the Na+K+ATPase) with the aim of recognising the importance of international research collaboration.
In total, 47 top researchers from international universities have been appointed. Professor Hart is the only Gastroenterologist in the world to achieve this honour.
