Understanding hereditary pancreatitis to improve diagnosis

Podcast: Research Pulse, Episode 02.

In this episode of Research Pulse, we’re focusing on a recent research discovery relating to hereditary pancreatitis that could help to improve the healthcare provided for Aboriginal Australians.

We speak with world-renowned researcher Professor Toby Coates AO, Director of Kidney and Islet Transplantation at the Royal Adelaide Hospital.


We learn about:

  • chronic pancreatitis
  • the over-expression of genes responsible for chronic pancreatitis among Aboriginal Australians
  • how this new knowledge can assist clinicians to make an accurate diagnosis when young patients present with signs of chronic pancreatitis
