We are a team of researchers from multidisciplinary backgrounds at different stages of academic careers. Our focus in on healthcare research but we collaborate with colleagues in basic science, law and the social sciences at the University and colleagues across the world.
Our research pages features summaries of projects that students have undertaken as SSCs or independently with the group, during electives. We have affiliated group members based at other academic institutions and collaborators from Europe and Australasia. We support undergraduates, newly qualified doctors and early career researchers get established in research and academia.
As a group, by coincidence we share a passion for cycling and / or cats (!) and amongst us we speak English, Russian, French, German, Urdu, Danish, Spanish, Bengali, Arabic, Hebrew, Hindi, and Yoruba! We run a monthly journal club where we chat through new papers that have been published. Dr O’Bresail runs an Early Career Researchers group that meets once every 2-3 weeks to share learning, resources and provide support.
