Dr Karen Grant

Director of Admissions & Deputy Director of Medical Studies

Research Overview

I have two main areas of research: parasitology and medical education. In parasitology, my research focused on the identification, characterisation and validation of novel drug targets for the medically important protozoan parasites, Leishmania and Trypanosoma brucei, with a particular emphasis on protein kinases. In medical education, my research focuses on evidence-based admissions procedures, the application of learning theories in the medical education context, the use of simulation in medical education and the teaching & assessment of professionalism.
