Major Max Marsden

Clinical Research Fellow

I studied medicine at Imperial College Medical School and joined the Army as a Medical Cadet in my third year. I developed an interest in trauma care at medical school and did my Medical Elective in Washington D.C. at the MedSTAR trauma unit. I deployed to Afghanistan with the British Army in 2012 and was predominately involved in Pre-Hospital care with a short period also spent at the field hospital at Camp Bastion.

During my first year as a General Surgery registrar I was successful at the Military’s Higher Research Degree Board and was fortunate to join the Centre for Trauma Sciences in October 2016 as a clinical research fellow working towards a PhD. I was awarded a one year Honorary Research Fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeons of England. My research interests include the prediction of Traumatic Coagulopathy specifically in the pre-hospital environment. I am exploring how Bayesian Networks aid decision making in both the Military and Civilian context.

My medical interests include disaster and conflict medicine, resuscitation and trauma surgery. I enjoy teaching and I regularly instruct on the Advanced Life Support and Battlefield Advanced Trauma Life Support courses.
