Professor Duncan Angus McGrouther was appointed to the UK’s first Chair of Plastic Surgery at University College London and subsequently recruited to Manchester, where he developed a large laboratory group investigating fields of wound healing relevant to reconstructive surgery. Additionally, Prof McGrouther has been involved in pioneering clinical trials involving new pharmaceuticals to prevent scarring or tissue engineered constructs to facilitate nerve repair.
He has been instrumental in facilitating the translation of a number of basic science research projects to clinical application. He has collaborated widely and formed the largest peripheral nerve study group in Europe. Prof McGrouther has also been instrumental in developing novel teaching aids, such as three-dimensional dissections and reconstructions of the hand. He was nominated as one of the ten foremost surgeons in the UK.
