Senior Lecturer and Honorary Consultant
Dr Alexander Doney is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Dundee and Honorary Consultant Physician at Ninewells Hospital and Medical School, Dundee.
He is currently working within the Medicines Monitoring Unit (MEMO) with Professor Tom MacDonald and Dr Isla Mackenzie. He also directs the development of the eClinical Phenome within the Health Informatic Centre, Dundee which manages large bioresources in Tayside linked to electronic Medical Records (EMR).
He initially studied pure genetics and went on to a PhD in molecular genetic epidemiology of cardiovascular disease and dyslipidaemia but subsequently trained in clinical medicine specialising in Clinical Pharmacology and General Internal Medicine. His clinical interests led him towards Acute Stroke Medicine and neurovascular health and he led the Acute Stroke Programme in Ninewells Hospital for a number of years.
Research interests have been in genomics combined with health informatics, information technology and medical image processing as a means of providing a wide range of clinical phenotypes for high quality studies in investigating genetic determinants of disease risk and therapeutic response with the ultimate aim of translation of this knowledge into clinical health benefits.
He has played a central role in inaugurating and expanding large EMR-linked bioresources at the University of Dundee including GoDARTS, GoSHARE, BIOSTAT CHF and INSPIRE, which aims to deliver genomically informed Precision Medicine Globally.
