Dr Alex Semprini

Alternative and complementary medicines, Medicinal cannabis

Alex completed his medical training at St George’s Hospital in London, UK where he developed a strong interest in clinical academia. Since joining MRINZ in 2015 Alex has fostered research interests in novel methodology, clinical research networks and community based ‘real world’ evidence looking at the generalisability of traditional RCT data to end populations. He also became our third member of staff to have twins and warns anyone looking to join the organisation there’s clearly something in the water…

Alex is a Deputy Director of the institute and runs the Alternative and Complementary Medicine and Medicinal Cannabis programmes with New Zealand’s Pharmacy Research Network.
