Professor Peter Mortimer trained in Dermatology in Sheffield and Oxford. He was appointed ‘Physician to the Skin Department’ at St George’s and consultant skin physician to the Royal Marsden Hospital in 1986 and has been Professor of Dermatological Medicine to the University of London since 2000.

Interest in lymphatics began in Oxford where he undertook his thesis on ‘the measurement of skin lymph flow’.

He has over 280 publications cited on PubMed.

He has been Chief Investigator on research programme grants from The Wellcome Trust, British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK and the Medical Research Council. His interests include causes and treatment of all forms of lymphatic dysfunction including lymphoedema and cellulitis.
