Professor Reem Kayyali

School Director Research & Enterprise

About

I obtained my pharmacy degree from Nottingham University in 1992. I subsequently completed an MSc in Biopharmacy at King's College London and then a PhD related to use of iron chelators in the management of thalassaemia. I was then awarded the Mapplethorpe fellowship for 2 years at King's College London to conduct research related to redox activity and apoptosis by iron chelators. Following that, I completed 4 years as research fellow at University College London Medical School working on structure-function activity of iron chelators' combinations and shuttling of iron in the body. In 2006, I joined Kingston University as a senior lecturer. I am currently a professor in clinical and applied pharmacy practice in the School of Life Sciences, Pharmacy and Chemistry, acting as the School director of research and enterprise, and the MPharm course director.

My current research interests focus on public health and medicines optimisation. The emphasis is on evaluating the use of innovative technology to streamline and optimise public health and the care of patients with long term conditions. I have a special interest in issues related to cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. As a pharmacist, my research interests also focus on building the evidence of the role of this profession in disease prevention and management and public health. As an academic, I am also interested in healthcare professionals' and patients' education and the use of simulation and serious games in this regard with a hope to build a strategy for pharmacy education that ensures their recognition as an integral part in the healthcare team.

Research

I have more than 20 years' experience in research ranging from biochemical analysis to qualitative and quantitative social research skills related to public health and smart innovations to improve patients' outcomes.  I am successful in securing grant funding and is currently the Co-PI in two EU grants; WELCOME (http://www.welcome-project.eu/home.aspx) related to technology enabled care and AEGLE related to big data analytics in health (http://www.aegle-uhealth.eu/en/) and a PI of an Innovate UK grant; OPTIMAL (http://www.optimal-project.co.uk/) related to optimisation of discharge to prevent avoidable hospital readmissions and small fund from the Health Innovation Network related to mapping public health needs. I work strategically with local authorities, the voluntary sector and NHS partners within the South West to ensure the translation of research into practice while evaluating initiatives like the healthy living pharmacy and the telehealth pathfinder experience in Croydon. My current research interests focus on public health and medicines optimisation. The emphasis is on evaluating the use of innovative technology to streamline and optimise public health and the care of patients with long term conditions. The other key interest revolves around building the evidence and skills to enhance and expand the role of the pharmacy profession in disease prevention and management.
