Dr Richard Hull was appointed as a Consultant Nephrologist in March 2014. He studied medicine at the University of Cambridge and gained his membership of the Royal College of Physicians during his early postgraduate training at Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals NHS Trust. He went on to complete his specialist training in Renal Medicine in the South Thames Renal Programme which included his appointment as a Wellcome Trust Clinical PhD fellow at the MRC Clinical Sciences Centre, Imperial College London. His research thesis on the mechanisms underlying the regulation of macrophage activation and glomerular inflammation by JunD led to the award of a Doctor of Philosophy in June 2012 and triggered his ongoing interest in autoimmune renal disease.

He is at the Princess Royal University Hospital every Friday providing a ward consult service for renal patients and jointly managing the weekly general nephrology clinic.
