PhD Candidate

MBBS(Hons I)

Dr Brendon Neuen is an NHMRC supported PhD candidate at The George Institute for Global Health based at the University of Oxford, where he is also reading for an MSc in epidemiology and clinical trials as a Clarendon Scholar.

Prior to this, he was a medical registrar at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and a Clinical Lecturer at the University of Sydney, Australia. He graduated from James Cook University with 1st Class Honors and an Academic Medal and has worked across diverse settings from tropical Far North Queensland to inner-city Sydney, where he was Resident of the Year at St Vincent's Hospital in 2015.

Brendon’s clinical and research interest lies at the intersection of diabetes, cardiovascular and kidney disease; he is currently involved in the analyses of both large-scale clinical trials and observational studies using routinely collected healthcare information. He has published 35 peer-reviewed articles and conference proceedings, including work featured in The Lancet, Circulation, and Kidney International. In 2013, his research on hemodialysis vascular access was recognized with two national awards from the Australian and New Zealand Society of Nephrology (the youngest recipient at the time).

In addition, he has a particular interest in global health and medical education. He was recently appointed as an International Society of Nephrology (ISN) Global Kidney Health Atlas Fellow and is a member of the ISN Education Working Group and the Australasian Kidney Trials Network CKD Working Group. Prior to moving to Oxford, he co-led the Clinical Teaching Fellowship Program at the University of Sydney and was co-chair of the Innovations Group at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital.

He hopes to improve the lives of people living with kidney disease by working as a nephrologist, epidemiologist, and clinical trialist, undertaking high-impact research that can guide chronic disease policy, practice, and advocacy both in Australia and globally.
