In this episode I am so pleased to be joined by Prof Douglas Veale, Consultant Rheumatologist and Director of the EULAR Centre of excellence for arthritis and rheumatic diseases at St Vincent’s University Hospital and someone I am lucky enough to call my mentor.
Doug chats about his family history in the medical profession, how he knew he wanted to be a doctor since he was 10 years old, his education at RSCI (both academic and social) and his time as a researcher in the UK. We also talk about his research career in Rheumatoid and Psoriatic Arthritis, seminal work on joint hypoxia and work into early diagnosis and treatment of RA and in trying to identify patients before they get arthritis. We also chat about the benefits of precision medicine and 'finding the right drug for the right patient at the right time'.
As a clinician scientist Doug gives real insight into the impact translational research can have on patients lives. The passion and dedication he has towards his patients is extremely evident, I hope you enjoy.
