About The Presenter

Dr. Christopher Ellis
Dr. Christopher Ellis
Dr. Chris Ellis initially studied Medical Biochemistry achieving a First with Honours. He went on to work in Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics at GalxoSmithKline (GSK) for three years publishing a paper on markers used for studying the CYP450 system. Shortly after moved to Pfizer to work in Regulatory Affairs on the medicolegal aspects of drug licencing in both the UK and Ireland. 

During this time he was also working for four charities including homeless shelters and hospitals as a volunteer. This led him to start to look beyond the pharmaceutical industry and consider medicine as an option. 

Chris went on to study at Barts and The London School of Medicine where he initially developed and interest in emergency medicine and took part in their extra-curricular Prehospital Care Programme which allowed him to gain additional training with the London Ambulance Service (LAS) and the Helicopter Emergency Medicine Service (HEMS). However, an F1 job in general adult psychiatry ultimately caught his attention when he was exposed to the plight of people suffering from severe mental health conditions and how a desperately underfunded branch of medicine tried to help them. 

Chris is now a core trainee on the North London rotation and is more than happy to teach and share his passion for mental health via the Medics.Academy platform.
