Prof. John Hermon-Taylor BA (Hons) 2 MB BChir FRCS MChir

Prof. John Hermon-Taylor is a molecular scientist, retired surgeon and internationally renowned Crohn’s Disease expert, based at King’s College London. His research into Mycobacterium Avium subspecies Paratuberculosis (MAP) and its relationship to Crohn’s has spanned over 30 years. It is his belief, based on the evidence to date, that MAP is the predominant cause of Crohn’s Disease. Between 1997 and 2007 he developed a modern therapeutic vaccine against MAP (together with Tim Bull at St George’s and Sarah Gilbert at Oxford University) designed to treat Crohn’s. He believes that the vaccine holds the best hope of Crohn’s cure we have ever had.
