gut reaction


Emptying your bowels, it’s something we all do, but no one talks about it. However, for many people with conditions that impair this most normal of bodily functions, it can impact day-to-day life in unexpected and challenging ways.

Gut Reaction is a short film that follows four people - Oli, Abi, Paul and Louisa who live with gut disease and how it affects them personally and socially. Alongside these stories Dr Ewan St. John Smith and Dr James Hockley from the Department of Pharmacology, University of Cambridge present fascinating new research that will drive new drug discovery to help people with gut disease live normal, pain free lives.
