Webinar Director

Dr Protima Deb

Dr Protima Deb

Dr Protima Deb is a Consultant Paediatric Gastroenterologist working at The Royal London Hospital. She completed her medical degree at Imperial College and graduated in 2002. Her early paediatric training was at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital in London, where she achieved Membership of the Royal College of Paediatrics in 2006. She was appointed to the Higher Specialist Training Programme in Paediatric Gastroenterology in The London Deanery and completed her training in 2014. After this, she pursued her academic interests and was awarded a fellowship to investigate whether enteral diets, used as first line therapy for children with active Crohn’s disease, affect the microbiota. She was appointed as a consultant during her fellowship and she continues to balance both a clinical and academic career.

Dr Protima Deb is a "self-confessed research enthusiast". Her specialist area of interest is inflammatory bowel disease. Her work looking at the microbiome in childhood Crohn’s disease was the subject of her doctoral thesis which she was awarded from Queen Mary University of London in 2019. She continues her fascinating research work uninterrupted as a consultant with an honorary contract at Queen Mary University, based at the Blizard institute, where she continues to explore the field of microbiome and inflammatory bowel disease.
