Research by some of our clinical lecturers, as the develop into independent research leaders.
Anaesthetics | AEROSPACE MEDICINE, HYPOXIA AND LUNG DISEASE
Might iron be important in the aetiology and clinical management of hypoxic lung disease? Can healthy air-travel passengers, if genetically susceptible, develop hypoxic pulmonary hypertension?
DERMATOLOGY | INVESTIGATING NEW TREATMENTS FOR ATOPIC DERMATITIS
Atopic disease includes asthma, eczema and hay fever and affects up to 20-30% of the UK population. Eczema or atopic dermatitis (AD) is the most common skin disease in the UK and there is significant morbidity and impact on quality of life.

Studying the use of genetics for the differential diagnosis of young adult-onset diabetes and in the optimisation of their management.
GASTROENTEROLOGY | IRON IN NON-ALCOHOLIC FATTY LIVER DISEASE (NAFLD) AND INSULIN RESISTANCE
Iron is a potentially modifiable contributor to the progression of NAFLD, the commonest cause of liver disease, and insulin resistance, which underlies the pathogenesis of the disorder.
Can the prescription of oral anticoagulants to patients with atrial fibrillation be increased with the help of an automated software system in GP practices?
