    David Kavanagh graduated in Medicine and Immunology from the University of Glasgow in 1998. Following basic medical training he undertook a PhD at Newcastle University elucidating the genetics of atypical Haemolytic Uraemic Syndrome (aHUS). He then undertook a research position in Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis examining the functional significance of genetic variants in the complement system in aHUS.
