General Medicine research

  • There are 50 paediatricians with consultant appointments in the Department of General Medicine, the majority of whom are involved in research.

    The Department forms the basis of the Clinical Paediatrics group, in the Infection and Immunity theme at the MCRI. The group leaders are Penelope Bryant and Tom Connell. The group aims:

    • To facilitate collaborative clinical research (link) in children admitted with common conditions
    • To support advanced trainees (link) doing their RACP projects in General Paediatrics
    • To collate and highlight research output (link) of the members of the Department
    • To provide research support for all members of the Department
