The David Price Evans Global Health and Infectious Diseases Research Group is led by Professor Alison Holmes OBE, who is the David Price Evans Chair in Global Health and Infectious Diseases at the University of Liverpool. The group focuses its work on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and the management of infectious diseases around the world.
Professor David Price Evans
The Chair position is named after the late Emeritus Professor David Price Evans, who was Head of Medicine at the University of Liverpool from 1968 until 1983 and Chair of Medicine from 1972 to 1983.
Professor Price Evans’s research brought him a central role in the development of the field of pharmacogenetics, which, anticipating the advent of ‘personalised medicine’, works from the idea that individual people react to drugs differently depending on their genetic constitution. His income from Medicine was also supplemented by success as a farmer in Wales.
Professor Price Evans gifted to the University the funding to endow two Chairs in Medicine; the David Price Evans Chair of Medicine and the Owen and Ellen Evans Chair of Cancer Studies (later the Owen and Ellen Evans Chair of Surgery), named in memory of his parents. Professor Price Evans died aged 92 on 29 August 2019, leaving a significant bequest to the University in his will.
