Constantinos Parisinos is a Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Training Fellow at the Institute of Health Informatics, UCL. He qualified in medicine from Edinburgh in 2009, gained an MSc in Public Health at The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in 2012 and completed a NIHR Academic Clinical Fellowship at QMUL in 2016. He is a Specialist Registrar in Gastroenterology & Hepatology, with sub-specialty clinical interests in advanced endoscopy and pancreatobiliary medicine. 

Research Summary

Constantinos uses large-scale clinical, imaging and genetic data to understand, prevent and treat liver, pancreatobiliary and gastrointestinal diseases. His research interests are broad, but he has a particular focus on using genetic instruments to investigate whether modifiable exposures, and potential drug targets, causally influence disease risk.

Constantinos has acquired skills in electronic health record (EHR) phenotyping, data science, genetic epidemiology and causal inference. He uses agnostic, hypothesis free methodologies in large population health cohorts to identify and further interrogate associations between traits and multiple diseases. In future, he plans to use both "traditional" prediction models as well as artificial intelligence methodologies to identify individuals in the population at greatest risk of developing liver and pancreatobiliary diseases. 

Teaching Summary

Constantinos has led on delivering the UCL MBBS Year 4 Use of Evidence - Prognosis in Clinical Medicine curriculum. This involves a quarterly lecture followed by small group tutorial case studies.
He further teaches UCL MBBS medical students as part of the Cardiometabolic Patient Pathway module. This takes the form of a short talk followed by group tutorials which involve clinical interaction with real patients. 
Constantinos teaches in the yearly IHI short courses on electronic health record phenotyping. 
Constantinos has completed a JAG accredited "Train the Endoscopy Trainers" course at St Mark's Hospital and regularly trains more junior Gastroenterology & Hepatology trainees in gastroscopy and colonoscopy.
