Professor Xavier Griffin spearheads academic orthopaedics at QMUL and Barts Health, having joined in August 2020 as the inaugural chair of Bone & Joint Health. Xavier’s vision is for worldclass excellence in research and clinical academic training; providing opportunity for the next generation of clinician scientists to realise their aspirations.
Xavier is a NIHR Clinician Scientist and has been awarded over £10m of research funding. He has over 80 peer reviewed publications including in the New England Journal of Medicine, He is a recognised research leader in the management of hip fracture and is excited to have just launched the WHiTE PLATFORM study with colleagues at University of Oxford. Xavier is Chief Investigator for a number of National Institute Health Research funded clinical trials, having led 8 in the last 5 years and supported a further 5.
Xavier is driven by having meaningful impact on patient care; his research is focused on the clinical and cost effectiveness of new and existing treatments to improve bone and joint health and has been cited by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence.
Having realised that boxing may not be the best sport to combine with a surgical career, outside of work Xavier can be found mountain biking or rock climbing usually with his young son in tow!
