New Director of Research for North Bristol NHS Trust and University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust

Monday, 1 February 2010

North Bristol NHS Trust and University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust are delighted to announce the appointment of a new Director of Research.

Professor David Wynick will advance and integrate the research agendas of the two trusts with those of the University of Bristol and University of the West of England. He takes up the new appointment on 1 March 2010.

David, who is a clinical academic, has worked for the University of Bristol and University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust since 1995, will take on this new post alongside his existing role as Professor of Molecular Medicine at the University of Bristol.

He will continue with his own research - focused on better understanding the mechanisms that underlie the development and maintenance of chronic pain states, predominantly in patients with diabetes - and to run his specialist endocrine and diabetes outpatient clinics at UH Bristol.

David said: “By working strategically together we will be able to combine and maximise the research strengths across the two trusts and the universities with a co-ordinated vision across Bristol for excellence in clinical and health services research.”
