Professor Andrew Wolf qualified from Cambridge in 1980 and
trained in anaesthesia and paediatrics in the UK and abroad. This
included 4 years in Bristol as lecturer in Anaesthesia. During a
period in Melbourne Australia he developed a particular interest in
the rapidly developing speciality of paediatric cardiac anaesthesia
and intensive care.
He returned to Bristol in 1995 in order to help build a new
paediatric cardiac programme under the spotlight of media coverage
and a national investigation.
Research interests include modification of
stress and inflammation to surgery, fast track pediatric cardiac
surgery, pharmacology of drugs in PICU and origins of hypertension.
He was appointed to the Chair of Anaesthesia in Bristol in 2001 but
returned to full time clinical practice in 2005 and maintains an
active research profile, with over 70 peer reviewed papers
