Prof Andrew Murphy
Prof Andrew W Murphy is Foundation Professor, Discipline of General Practice, School of Medicine, NUI Galway, Director of the HRB Primary Care Clinical Trials Network Ireland and a General Practitioner Principal, Turloughmore Medical Centre, County Galway. Prof Murphy has a distinguished research career, including leading a clinical trial on the provision of secondary cardiac care in the community which was, at the time, the largest academic-lead trial ever conducted on the island of Ireland. Andrew’s research, largely quantitative and always collaborative, addresses chronic disease management and professional practice in the community. In leading the Primary Care CTN, he builds on previous collaborations with partners in RSCI, QUB and the ICGP. With significant input from the public/patient guiding the research, Andrew has a vision that the Primary Care CTN will break new ground to answer common problems in primary care, that will improve individual patient health and healthcare.
