Dr John Broad

Lecturer in Medical Sciences



The major part of my current role is to design and lead physiology and anatomy sessions for Phase 1 students (including GEP and PA students). I also lead the Practical Enrichment sessions in year 1 of the MBBS course. My teaching interests are based around pharmacology, gastroenterology and neuroscience. Prior to my recent return to the London campus, I was the head of year 1 in QMUL Malta, and led the physiology teaching. I was the Malta module lead for Brain and Behaviour, and for the Human Science and Public Health modules.

I am the Deputy Head of SSCs and Electives for years 3 - 5. 

Before I started my teaching career, I was a post-doctoral researcher based in The Centre for Neuroscience and Trauma. I specialised in human tissue gastrointestinal neuropharmacology. 


I am the co-lead for the GEP Brain and Behaviour course, and the GEP Principal Internal Examiner. I also act as a senior tutor for year 1, and a MedPro supervisor. I currently supervise two SSC 4 projects, and two intercalated Medical Education projects. 


Research Interests:

My research interests as a post-doctoral researcher were in the field of neurogastroenterology. I am actively researching the teaching of pharmacology to medical students.
