Clinical Senior Lecturer in Paediatric Allergy, St Mary's Campus.
Dr Boyle was appointed to Imperial College London as NIHR Clinical Lecturer in 2007, Clinical Senior Lecturer in 2009, and Director of the Paediatric Research Unit from 2013. Prior to this he trained in Paediatric Allergy and Immunology at the Royal Children's Hospital and Melbourne University, Australia where his PhD investigated the mechanisms through which dietary interventions may prevent eczema.
His main research focus is the primary prevention of allergic diseases, using both nutritional and non-nutritional interventions. Dr Boyle's Paediatric Research Unit is a specialist Clinical Research Facility for studies of Children and Young People, with a focus on the development of new ways of preventing, diagnosing and treating inflammatory conditions which affect young people. Dr Boyle was commissioned by the UK Food Standards Agency to undertake a comprehensive review of the evidence that dietary exposures during pregnancy or infancy are linked to allergic or autoimmune diseases. This work will inform revised UK Department of Health advice on infant feeding, to be published in 2016/17.(www.food.gov.uk/science/research/allergy-research/fs305005).
Dr Boyle is a Clinical Editor for the Cochrane Skin Group, a Co-Editor for Clinical and Experimental Allergy, Director of the Follow my Footsteps course, and Deputy Director of the Imperial College London Allergy MSc programme(www1.imperial.ac.uk/departmentofmedicine/postgraduate/allergyprogramme). He has been awarded over £2 million of research funding during his time at Imperial College London, and is regularly invited to speak at international conferences.
