"Without research and without data you cannot make decisions that are in the best interests of the patient.  It's as simple as that......."

This week we speak with the wonderful Professor Nick Bishop about the importance of ‘Research’ for children’s health. The conversation was educational and inspirational, and we hope that you enjoy listening to Nick as much as we did.

Nick is Vice President for Science and Research at the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health in the UK and also Professor of Paediatric Bone Disease and Head of the Academic Unit of Child Health in the Department of Oncology and Metabolism at the University of Sheffield.  He is also an honorary consultant at Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust. He graduated in medicine from Manchester University in 1982 and trained as a paediatrician in Manchester, Cambridge and Canada before moving to Sheffield and establishing the Children’s Metabolic Bone Disease Service, now the largest service of its kind in Western Europe.

He is Director of the Sheffield Children’s Clinical Research Facility, Associate Director of the Experimental Arthritis Treatment Centre for Children, co-lead of the Clinical Trials Working Group of the European Reference Network for Rare Bone Diseases, and the immediate past-President of the Academic Paediatric Association of Great Britain and Ireland.
