In Memoriam

Kome was a post-doctoral researcher, a GP at a practice in Oxford and also worked as a community cardiologist. During her NIHR-funded academic clinical fellowship (ACF), she developed a keen interest in improving the diagnosis and management of common infections. Her Wellcome Trust-funded DPhil focused on non-antibiotic treatment of common bacterial infections, namely, the use of cranberry extract as a means of managing acute urinary tract infections. At a post-doctoral level, in addition to pursuing antibiotic stewardship research,she worked on national (PRINCIPLE and PANORAMIC) and international (ECRAID-Prime) platform therapeutic clinical trials for epidemic and pandemic illnesses. 

Kome passed away after a short illness on 28 January 2024.  Dr Oghenekome Gbinigie (Kome) – a tribute — Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, University of Oxford
