Dr Eamon Raith is a Senior Registrar in the Intensive Care Unit at The Royal Adelaide Hospital and is a Senior Clinical Lecturer in the Discipline of Acute Care Medicine at The University of Adelaide. He is also appointed as an Honorary Clinical Senior Researcher in the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences at The University of Oxford, and an Honorary Clinical Lecturer in the Bloomsbury Institute of Intensive Care Medicine, within the Department of Experimental and Translational Medicine, at University College London. He coordinates colaborative projects across all three sites.
Dr Raith has established research projects in experimental & translational critical care medicine, with a focus on surgical & neurocritical care, and immune function and therapy in critical illness. This international program spans pre-clinical research, neurogenomics, mechanistic clinical research, clinical trials and international population studies in these areas. Recent work has focused on the management of COVID-19 and the role of immunomodulatory therapies and the development of a nascent critical care neurogenomics program in association with the Department of Neurogenetics at the Queen Square Institute of Neurology at The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London.
Dr Raith also leads the Global Critical Care Medicine Program within the Oxford University Global Surgery Group. This program is designed to address issues of global inequity in the provision of resuscitation, emergency care for life-threatening conditions and intensive care, across the emergency and critical care medicine delivery system, including prehospital and in-hospital care. This research specifically addresses the provision of critical care for non-communicable diseases, including surgical, obstetric, neuroscience and trauma critical care, and sequelae of these illnesses. Current projects are focussed on the critical care of children and young adults with head injuries.
