Emeritus Nuffield Professor of Anaesthetics


Training in Medicine, University Hospital, Geneva (1960-1969). Joined the Nuffield Department of Anaesthetics in January 1970 as research fellow, later Clinical Lecturer, University Lecturer, Clinical Reader. Nuffield Professor of Anaesthetics (1991-2012).


Throughout my career I have been interested in cardiovascular physiology and cardiovascular pharmacology, especially in respect of myocardial ischaemia and drug interactions. Such interests are highly relevant to anaesthesia, intensive care and perioperative medicine, my areas of clinical activity for 30 years.

I continue to be involved in research and teaching, both in Oxford and in London at the Royal College of Anaesthetists.
