The NIHR Research Professorship is really competitive and having another success in the SPCR is just amazing, and really highlights the quality of research that is generated by the School.
- Professor Christian Mallen, Keele University
Christian will target areas for new interventions, allowing GPs to have a wider range of options available to them when treating patients with these disabling conditions. He commented on how he sees the award benefiting patients and pratitioners "The Professorship will support research that has the potential for rapid translation into clinical practice and as such the portfolio of studies included should help to improve care for patients with these often neglected conditions. My team will be working on a range of trials assessing new and promising treatments including injection therapy for hip osteoarthritis and self-monitoring for gout."
