St Mark’s Hospital Foundation

St Mark’s The National Bowel Hospital & Academic Institute is the initiative of a highly committed team of medical and non-medical experts, working in partnership with leading business professionals who are dedicated to making the vision of improved bowel health a reality.

With the support of philanthropic funders, the St Mark’s team aims to develop research and innovation within the Institute and ensure that this research is translated into world-leading clinical solutions, which dramatically improve patient outcomes.

The Academic Institute will achieve this by strengthening the four foundations that underpin it:

  • Dedicated research teams that develop new treatments, translate them into clinical care and educate to disseminate best practice
  • The attraction of a critical mass of experts able to collaborate in international research
  • The provision of the most advanced systems and technology, including robotics, the provision of advanced imaging and sophisticated endoscopic equipment
  • A purpose-built physical environment housing research and education teams that supports the interactions within the Hospital that makes it so unique.
