A University of Leicester neonatal expert for starters. Professor David Field, Professor of Neonatal Medicine, is among the latest additions to that long-running reference book of noteworthy and influential individuals.

As well as conducting research and teaching in our Department of Health Sciences, Professor Field is also a consultant neonatologist at the University Hospitals of Leicester. Much of his research is conducted in The Infant Mortality & Morbidity Studies (TIMMS) group, including a database of babies born premature in the UK as part of ongoing work to improve survival rates for preterm births.

Among the other Leicester-related entries into Who’s Who this year the Leicester Mercury also highlights ITV news presenter Julie Etchingham, racial equality campaigner Simon Woolley and DMU Vice-Chancellor Dominic Shellard. And Professor Field is rubbing shoulders with familiar names from outside Leicester too, including X-Factor creator Simon Cowell and influential hairdresser Vidal Sassoon.
