Daniel Adegoke

PhD Student




I studied medicine at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria and came to the UK in 2005. Since then, I have practised in the field of Emergency medicine. In my 5th year of training, I decided to pause my training for Research (OOPR) and joined the Centre for Trauma Sciences as a Clinical Research Fellow in Trauma Sciences in August 2023. I registered for a PhD in Trauma Sciences at the Centre after completing a Master’s degree in Evidence-Based Health Care at the University of Oxford. I have always wanted to learn about research and use it appropriately. I am passionate about enhancing our understanding and adding to the body of knowledge in Emergency Medicine.

My research focuses on “Oxygen Delivery in Major Trauma Haemorrhage” with particular emphasis on finding better ways to get oxygen to the body using red blood cells after a significant blood loss from injury. It looks at how the severity of shock affects patient survival, how using older red blood cells might be harmful, and how storing red blood cells in new ways might help. My research will help stop shock-injured patients from developing organ failure and dying later during their treatment.

I have been awarded a Doctoral Research Fellowship in 2024 for three years by the Royal College of Emergency Medicine. I also teach the Traumatic Brain Injury module of the Neuroscience and Experimental Pathology iBSc.
