Role: 
Professor of General Practice
Profile: 

Prof Liam Glynn has been appointed as the new Professor of General Practice at the Graduate Entry Medical, University of Limerick. He was previously Senior Lecturer in General Practice in the College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, National University of Ireland, Galway and also Adjunct Senior Clinical Lecturer, Graduate Medical School, University of Limerick. 

He qualified from Trinity College, Dublin in 1995 and, after completing general practice training in the Scottish highlands and surviving some remote health care postings to Guyana and Ecuador, he returned to work in the West of Ireland.  He was awarded his M.Sc. degree in 2003 and his M.D. in 2007, both from National University of Ireland, Galway. He was appointed a HRB Cochrane fellow in 2007.

His career ambition is to contribute to the development of general practice and primary care in Ireland and the transformation of the Irish healthcare system with high quality teaching and research of international standing while continuing an active clinical role as a rural GP. In 2015, along with other Rural GPs, he co-founded the “No Doctor No Village” advocacy campaign.

Prof Glynn is a Fellow of the Royal College of General Practitioners and the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland. He has over 170 publications and 4 book chapters and over 2,600 citations. He is a referee for several international medical and medical education journals and a member of the Editorial Boards of Forum, the Journal of the Irish College of General Practitioners and the Journal of Comorbidity.

Research Interests: 

As PI of several National and EU funded research awards in Connected Health, Prof Glynn has developed and continue to lead a multi-disciplinary collaboration of researchers involving general practitioners, nurses, psychologists and engineers.

He has specific relevant prior experience in applying and researching mHealth interventions in clinical practice. His primary research interests are in preventive medicine with a focus on physical activity and diabetes and on bringing technological solutions to healthcare through connected health. Other research interests include chronic kidney disease, hypertension and adherence to medication. In addition, he has developed an international reputation in the area of cardiovascular multimorbidity and risk research, being one of the first researchers to describe the complex relationship between diabetes, chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular risk in the community.

Prof Glynn is also lead author and co-author of a series of Cochrane protocols and reviews in Hypertension among other topics as well as being lead author of the BMJ Clinical Evidence Reviews on adherence to cardiovascular medication all of which provide clinicians around the world with clarity around the evidence base for management of these conditions. 

As Co-PI within the EU funded NPP project, ITTS, he designed and conducted the first RCT examining the impact of a smartphone application on physical activity in the primary care. The results of this study were initially reviewed by the New England Journal of Medicine and went on to receive a double publication in the British Journal of General Practice. More locally, it led to development of various exercise initiatives for local communities the most successful of which now runs in collaboration with the Clare Sports Partnership, the HSE and the ‘Go For Life’ programme, with over 350 older adults attending exercise classes in 23 community locations throughout the county of Clare every week.
