Event description

Description

Inaugural Lecture given by Professor Daniel Peckham, Professor of Respiratory Medicine at the University of Leeds.

From Foxglove to Future Cure: a journey through cystic fibrosis



Daniel Peckham graduated from Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School in 1987. In 1992, he was appointed cystic fibrosis research fellow at City Hospital in Nottingham where he completed his doctoral thesis on ion transport. His work in Nottingham triggered a passion for research which he has pursued in conjunction with clinical medicine throughout his career. In 1998 he moved from a senior registrar post in Oxford to Leeds as a full-time NHS consultant with a specialist interest in cystic fibrosis and pulmonary infections.

The twin thrusts of his research are on CF-related pathophysiology focusing on airways inflammation, infection, gut microbiome and drug allergy, and health informatics. As clinical lead for respiratory medicine and a strong believer in the NHS, he has modernised and reshaped services, pioneering the design of chronic disease electronic patient records and the creation of a paperless cystic fibrosis unit that has been operational for more than a decade. At the same time he has developed a range of novel tools for undergraduate and postgraduate education and co-developed the British Thoracic Society e-learning platform. More recently he launched an education strategy for the European Cystic Fibrosis Society on whose board he sits as an elected member. In 2016, he was appointed as the first Professor of Respiratory Medicine at the University of Leeds.

Refreshments will be available from 4:30pm and after 6:00pm at the conclusion of the lecture.
