Research Areas

Professor Stewart supervises an active Endocrinology research group funded by renewed programme grant support from The Wellcome Trust, MRC, ARC grants and most recently an ERC Advanced Research Grant.

His research began under the mentorship of Professor Sir Christopher Edwards in Edinburgh in the 1980’s and was endorsed through a MRC Senior Clinical Fellowship (1992-2002) based in Birmingham and the South-western Medical Centre at Dallas. New discoveries have been made in the field of hypertension, obesity, inflammation, PCOS and most recently ageing. The research is truly translational in that it has led to the widespread development of selective 11β-HSD1 inhibitors as a novel therapeutic approach for patients with Metabolic syndrome. Over 280 original peer reviewed publications, with in excess of 13,000 citations have followed. Paul has an H-index of 63.

Outside research, he has a major commitment to Clinical Medicine/Endocrinology both within the NHS Trust and at National and International level, being a member/Chair of several committees for the MRC, BHF, Endocrine Society and International Society for Endocrinology.
