Atmo Biosciences today announced the appointment of renowned gastroenterologist Professor Eamonn Quigley as Chair of its Medical Advisory Board (MAB).

Prof. Quigley is David M. Underwood Chair of Medicine in Digestive Disorders and Chief of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at Houston Methodist Hospital in Texas. He is internationally known for his research on gastrointestinal motility disorders, particularly irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and its link to the gut microbiome. As Atmo MAB Chair, Prof. Quigley will provide leadership and guidance regarding Atmo’s clinical trials portfolio.

“I am thrilled to have someone of Professor Quigley’s standing join our MAB as Chair,” said Atmo Biosciences CEO Malcolm Hebblewhite. “Eamonn is an internationally respected leader in gastroenterology. His ongoing research and thought leadership in the areas of motility and Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) will be invaluable as we seek to develop these two key areas of focus in the U.S. and beyond.”

Preliminary results of a study comparing Atmo Biosciences’ novel ingestible gas-sensing capsule with a validated wireless motility capsule indicate that the Atmo capsule is a safe and promising tool to assess gut transit time.

Data from the Monash University comparative study, led by Professor Peter Gibson, was presented in a poster at the Meeting of the Federation of Neurogastroenterology & Motility (FNM 2020), held in Adelaide last week.
