Professor Griffin - Professor of Medicine
Professor George Griffin (MD., F.R.C.P., FMedSci.)
Professor George Griffin studied clinical medicine and basic science at St George's University of London; Harvard Medical School and the Royal Postgraduate Medical School and received most of his postgraduate clinical training at Hammersmith Hospital. Professor Griffin was a Wellcome Trust Senior Lecturer at St George's University of London for eight years before he became Professor of Infectious Diseases and Medicine and has been pivotal with his team in building up the Centre for Infection to be known internationally for clinical and basic research.
Professor Griffin's interests focus around the host response to infection at cell, molecular and whole body level. He has studied such responses using Tuberculosis and HIV as models. In addition, he has pioneered the use of vaccines as a way to study human immune responses, particularly during the course of HIV infection. Professor Griffin established the first human clinical vaccines trial centre at St George's Healthcare NHS Trust and it is in the back round of this that the two new Hotung Chairs and the establishment of the new HIV Phase III facility have been made.
Professor Griffin has made many appointments on the Wellcome Trust and MRC grants committees and recently was part of the Gates Grand Challenge grant awarding committee. Furthermore, he has recently been appointed Chairman of the Advisory Committee in Dangerous Pathogens, responsible for advising the Government.
He is passionate about the fusion of basic science with excellent clinical practice at the undergraduate and postgraduate level.
