Dr Suzanne Mashtoub is a Grant-Funded Researcher leading a research group at the Gastroenterology Department, Women’s and Children’s Hospital. Dr Mashtoub recently completed a NHMRC Postdoctoral Biomedical (Doherty) Fellowship (2014-2017), focussing on the efficacy of nutraceuticals (particularly Emu Oil, first used by Indigenous Australian people) in intestinal diseases, including the inflammatory bowel diseases (ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease), associated colorectal cancer and chemotherapy-induced mucositis. Dr Mashtoub’s team specialises in pre-clinical models of intestinal disorders, as part of the wider Digestive Health Research Group. Extending promising pre-clinical findings, Dr Mashtoub has been funded by the Channel 7 Children’s Research Foundation to conduct the world’s first clinical trial translating the efficacy of Emu Oil (encapsulated) in children with ulcerative colitis.
