After first graduating in chemistry/statistical analysis at Birkbeck College, University of London, in 1981, Prof. Grootveld completed his PhD degree research programme on bioanalytical chemistry and metallodrugs in 1985 at the same institution, and then conducted post-doctoral work for two years on the analysis of ‘markers’ of free radical activity in biofluids at King’s College, University of London.
He then spent 2.5 years lecturing and conducting research work at the Polytechnic of North London prior to taking up a Lectureship in Clinical Chemistry at St. Bartholomew and the Royal London School of Medicine and Dentistry in 1989, where he subsequently became senior lecturer and then reader in chemical pathology. Later, he transferred to London South Bank University where he was reader in research (chemical pathology), and director of their MSc Forensic Science course. He was then appointed professor of chemical pathology and biomedical materials at the Institute for Materials Research and Innovation (IMRI), University of Bolton, where he established and directed a Master’s course in medical and healthcare devices?the first of its kind available in the UK.
