New Appointment: Director of the UK Perioperative Medicine Clinical Trials Group

Professor Rupert Pearse has been successfully appointed as Director of the UK Perioperative Medicine Clinical Trials Group for the National Institute of Academic Anaesthesia (NIAA).

The establishment of a clinical trials group sees the NIAA entering an exciting new phase of its development. Under the supervision of Professor Pearse the group will seek to identify, develop, support and coordinate the efficient delivery of large scale clinical trials in order to improve the health outcomes of patients receiving perioperative care in the UK.

Professor Pearse is currently Professor of Intensive Care Medicine at the William Harvey Research Institute, Queen Mary University of London and at the Adult Critical Care Unit, Royal London Hospital, Barts Health NHS Trust. His research interests lie in the development of perioperative medicine in order to improve clinical outcomes following major surgery. He has considerable experience of a range of research methodologies, in particular multicentre trials, cluster trials, and large epidemiological studies, but also health services research and translational research.

The NIAA is delighted to be able to appoint Professor Pearse to this challenging and important role and further details about the activities of the CTG will be shared via the NIAA website and mailing list over the coming months.
