Dr. Martin Dawes began his career in the UK, studying for his MD at the London Hospital in 1978. He completed a primary care-focused postgraduate education in Bath in 1983 and then moved to Oxford where he spent the next nine years in an office-based practice providing primary care and obstetric intra-partum care. In 1992, he completed his PhD based on studies of the effects of weight gain in pregnancy.

Dawes current research interests include information retrieval, hypertension, and pharmacogenomics in primary care. He is an active participant with six funded research projects and is the Principal Investigator on a seventh funded study.

In addition to his research and practice interests, Dawes has considerable expertise and passion for the development of training programs that allow clinicians to engage in Masters level research.
