He graduated from the University of New South Wales with First Class Honours in 2005.

Dr Sudarshan Paramsothy then undertook a PhD (2013-6) through St Vincent’s Hospital and the University of New South Wales, investigating therapeutic microbial manipulation using faecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) in ulcerative colitis. He was awarded an NHMRC Postgraduate Research Scholarship along with several national and international grants to perform this research. His PhD work has attracted widespread recognition with plenary presentations and awards at major international conferences and was ultimately published in the highly prestigious Lancet medical journal.
