I have a long standing interest in research training for both clinical and basic scientists. I have supported 10 clinical training fellows and currently sponsor two Wellcome Trust Senior Clinical Fellows (Professor Timothy Griffiths and Professor Patrick Chinnery). I have chaired the Wellcome Trust Clinical Interest Group and the NIHR Fellowship Committee. I have supervised in total 35 PhD students and currently supervising 10 PhD students. Research training and mentorship is a major component of my current activity.
