Mr David Murray MD FRCS - Vascular Research
Mr David Murray MD FRCS - Consultant Vascular and Endovascular Surgeon
He held the first appointment of a clinical research fellow to the UK Centre for Tissue Engineering. 
His MD Thesis entitled “Tissue Engineering : Modulating vascular smooth muscle cell phenotype and extracellular matrix” was submitted 2009 with MD.  
Concurrent with running a busy Private Practice in Vascular Surgery he maintains a research interest in Peripheral arterial disease, angioplasty and stenting,  varicose vein treatment, and EVAR for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA)
