Professor Pali Hungin recently completed 12 years as the foundation Dean of Medicine and Head of the School of Medicine, Pharmacy and Health. A medical doctor, he is a member of the Centre for Integrated Healthcare Research within the School. His current role includes responsibility for external/clinical matters with the NHS and other organisations. He is Durham University’s Director on the Academic Health Science Network NE and Cumbria (AHSN), a council member of the Northern Health Sciences Alliance (NHSA) and an appointed member of the Council of Governors of the Tees, Esk, and Wear Valleys NHS Mental Health Trust.

Professor Hungin has experience of clinical practice and research in primary and secondary care, particularly in family medicine, gastroenterology and cardiovascular disease. His research interests include epidemiology, the earlier detection of disease and the evidence-based management of long-term disorders, including therapeutics.

His publications cover the use of early disease markers, investigative services, the prevalence and patterns of gastrointestinal disorders and the barriers to the implementing effective care. His MD thesis was on endoscopy for upper gastrointestinal problems. He has made key contributions to our awareness of the prevalences of inflammatory bowel disease and irritable bowel syndrome internationally and the management of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease.

Professor Hungin’s research team has experience in qualitative and quantitative methodologies, bringing interdisciplinary perspectives and skills to health problems against a backdrop of socioeconomic inequalities and deprivation. The team’s recent efforts have concentrated on cardiovascular problems, including the early detection and effective management of heart failure in elderly care settings.

Having graduated in Medicine from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, Professor Hungin undertook vocational training in general practice NE England. He was based at the Eaglescliffe Medical Practice in Stockton on Tees for over 20 years and also worked for 10 years as a Hospital Practitioner in gastrointestinal endoscopy at the James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough. He was appointed Professor at Durham University in 1996 and became Dean of Medicine and Head of School in 2003.

Professor Hungin is a founding member of the UK and European Primary Care Societies for Gastroenterology and was the founding Chair of the Northern Primary Care Research Network, a forerunner of the research networking movement in the UK. He was Chair of the NHS R&D forum (England), a member of the Independent Scientific Advisory Committee (ISAC) of the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA), and external adviser to the Italian Medicines Agency (AIFA). He served as Vice Chair of the University’s Ethics Advisory Committee and is a postgraduate external examiner to several European and Asian universities. He is currently on the Council of the United European Gastroenterology Federation and the Chair of the Rome Foundation for functional gastrointestinal disorders.

Pali has a long association with the Royal College of General Practitioners, having held their research fellowship and has served on the research group and their academic advisory board. He was awarded the College’s John Fry and recently, the William Pickles medal.

He has published over 100 papers in the peer-reviewed press and has edited or contributed to 11 monographs and books.

His other external contributions include being a trustee and Treasurer of the Royal Medical benevolent Fund and membership the County Priory Group of St John.

Pali is the President of the British Medical Association.
