Rajvinder Singh is a Professor of Medicine with the University of Adelaide and the Director of Gastroenterology at the Lyell McEwin & Modbury Hospitals, South Australia.

Over the last 10 years, he has published an average of 10 papers and 1 book chapter per year (Total overall: > 100 peer reviewed papers and 10 book chapters). He has been successful in obtaining grants (close to $AUD 1,0000,000 cumulatively) including grants from the Cancer Council and Cancer Australia to further investigate the utility of novel endoscopic imaging techniques in the detection of dysplasia and early cancer in Barrett’s Oesophagus. More recently, work on the investigation of the utility of serum biomarkers for colon cancer was selected as the top 10 best medical research initiatives in the country by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC, Australia).

He is actively involved in teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students. Further testament to this resulted in Teaching Awards at the Lyell McEwin Hospital, Australia in 2008 and 2009. He is also frequently invited to conduct basic and advanced endoscopy workshops for both trainees and Consultants across the country and overseas having participated in more than 100 workshops/symposiums. He has had speaking engagements and ‘live’ endoscopy demonstrations around the world including in the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, Korea, India, Singapore, New Zealand, Indonesia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Myanmar and the Philippines amongst other countries.

He is an Editorial Board member of Endoscopy and was a past Editorial Board member of Digestive Endoscopy and Endoscopy International Open. He is a committee member of the Standards of Practice and Publications committee with the World Endoscopy Organisation (WEO). He was the past International committee member of the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) and was tasked by the ASGE with organising the first joint ASGE-Australia program for the Digestive Diseases Week (DDW) in 2016 and again in 2017, 2019 and 2020. He was a Councillor with the Gastroenterological Endoscopic Society of Australia (GESA) and past chair of the Australian Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Association (AGEA).
