With the group our scope of ongoing research is very wide ranging - from qualitative mixed methods studies; epidemiology big data  and machine learning; prospective mechanistic clinical studies; multi centre randomised interventional trials; translational research and basic science lab-based projects.


Currently, we have 9 registered PhD or MD students with 11 successful doctoral graduates over the last 5 years.
