    Professor Brian Davidson has been a Professor of Surgery for over 20 years at the University College London (UCL) and consultant in HPB and Liver Transplant Surgery at the Royal Free Hospital since 1989. Over the last 20 years, he has helped develop the HPB and Liver Transplant surgical unit at the Royal Free Hospital. In parallel with the development of the HPB and Liver Transplant Unit surgical practice, he has run a research programme principally related to HPB disease. With a large number of UK collaborators, a highly successful research team has been developed. This has led to the publication of over 420 peer reviewed papers by the group. He was promoted to a personnel chair in Surgery at UCL in 1997 at the age of 39, the youngest UK Professor of Surgery at the time. He has personally supervised 34 successful higher degrees (PhD / MD) as well as examining widely in the UK.

    He has been involved in senior posts in Hospital management and within UCL. He has also been an advisor to NICE, the Healthcare Commission and the National Cancer Peer Review programme. He is interested in clinical trials and Evidence based Healthcare on which he has published and presented widely. He is currently a UK Editor for the UK Cochrane Group, Director of the London Editorial base for the HPB group and Course Director for the UCL MSc in Evidence based healthcare. He has taught and trained a large cohort of HPB and liver transplant surgeons who are directing HPB Units globally and have been invited author of 22 textbook chapters.

    He has a particular interest in liver, biliary tract and pancreatic surgery, with an emphasis on the management of cancer. He has published personal and unit data demonstrating world class outcomes throughout this field.
