Head of the Nuffield Division of Anaesethetics
- Associate Professor
Andrew Farmery studied Physiology and trained in Medicine and Anaesthetics in London, Cambridge and Oxford where he received a research fellowship in the Nuffield Division of Anaesthetics.
He now divides his time between clinical practice, research and teaching. His research group works in the area of biomedical engineering, developing novel intravascular sensors and analytical techniques to detect and monitor disordered physiology of the respiratory and cardiovascular systems in the critically ill. It is funded by the Wellcome Trust, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and the National Institute of Health Research. Its aim is to translate these new technologies and analytical models into medical devices that can have an impact on patient care.
Andrew is the Fellow & Tutor in Medicine, and head the undergraduate programme at Wadham Colllege, which requires him to keep thinking beyond the respiratory system and keeps him on his toes.
