He completed post-graduate training in London and was appointed a Consultant in 2012. He was awarded a Medical Research Council Training Fellowship in 2006 and was awarded his PhD in 2011 for research into the genetic causes of coeliac disease and Crohn’s disease.
Dr Dubois leads the Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Service at King’s, one of London’s largest Teaching Hospitals. His work there includes the development of a dedicated clinic for young adults, particularly those transitioning from paediatric services, and a clinic for patients with challenging coeliac disease. He combines this with an interest in nutrition and artificial nutrition support. He runs the gastrostomy (PEG) service at King’s, which has achieved consistently superior safety outcomes compared to national benchmarks.
Dr Dubois’s practice is based on extensive experience in treating patients with a variety of common gastroenterological symptoms such as reflux, abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation. He is an accomplished endoscopist and colonoscopist, and has an interest in the detection of pre-cancerous changes in inflammatory bowel disease. He seeks to provide personalized care, combining medical and nutritional therapies where appropriate.
Dr Dubois is a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and member of the British Society of Gastroenterology and the European Crohn’s and Colitis Organisation.
His main research interests are in Inflammatory bowel disease and coeliac disease. His research has been published widely in international medical and scientific journals, including research that has identified some of the genes causing coeliac disease. He has published many articles in gastroenterology, including primary research, reviews and a chapter in the Oxford Textbook of Medicine.
