Dr Jaimin Patel completed his medical training at the University of Birmingham (2005). After initial training and successful completion of his post-graduate exams in his chosen speciality of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine, Jaimin entered into clinical research.
Jaimin’s PhD investigated the effects of sepsis and ageing on neutrophil function and the role statins have in modulating neutrophil responses. The thesis was conferred in 2015 and the results have been presented nationally at the National Institute of Academic Anaesthesia’s Annual Scientific Meeting.
He was awarded NIHR Clinical Lecturership in Anaesthesia and ICM in 2016 at the University of Birmingham as part of the Perioperative, Anaesthesia, Critical Care and Trauma Trials (PACCT) group. He is currently in the final 6-months of his specialist training and is working clinically at the Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust.
Jaimin has translational research interests in peri-operative and intensive care medicine, with a focus on improving the outcomes for patients. His main research focuses on the use of novel therapies to modulate the innate response to inflammation/sepsis.
Jaimin is passionate about increasing access to research for trainees in Anaesthesia. As such, he was a co-founder of the West-Midlands Trainee Research in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care network (WMTRAIN) and has recently been appointed to vice-chair of the national trainee research collaborative, Research and Audit Federation of Trainees (RAFT).
