Dr James Daveson is a gastroenterologist with a sub-specialty clinical and research interest in coeliac disease and inflammatory bowel disease, as well as improving regional clinical outcomes in gastroenterology.
Originally from Mackay he established his gastroenterology practice (endosQ) in Queensland in 2008, at both the Mater Hospital in Mackay, and also the Wesley and St Andrew War Memorial Hospital in Brisbane, travelling between all sites on a weekly basis for over 15 years. He has facilitated the integration of clinical work with his research agenda, where he continues to grow his emerging track record as a world-leading clinician-researcher.
In 2019 he received an Advance Queensland Government Grant to help establish the Coral Sea Clinical Research Institute in Mackay which in has facilitated close to 30 clinical trials in Coeliac Disease, Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis and Eosinophilic Oesophagitis over a short period, to enable those in regional Queensland to be offered therapies which they otherwise would not have had access to, when having failed all available therapies in Australia. At Wesley Research Institute he is the Director of the Coeliac Disease and Immune Health Research Program.
