He is also an inaugural NIHR Senior Investigator, and Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences in the UK. He has authored over 300 peer-reviewed publications. Professor Pirmohamed's research focuses on individual variability in drug response, both safety and efficacy, with a view to evaluating the mechanisms, and identifying strategies to personalise medicines in order to optimise drug efficacy and minimise toxicity. The work spans the whole spectrum from discovery to implementation with laboratory based studies being linked translationally to patient studies, with the aim being to develop the evidence base that can move discoveries from the lab to the clinic.
