The Rest

Rob Mac Sweeney

Rob Mac Sweeney

Rob Mac Sweeney is an intensivist working in Belfast, Northern Ireland. He started Critical Care Reviews in October 2009, after initially running a pilot site called Critical Care Knowledge for a year. His aim was to make freely available links to a large library of articles he had stored over a number of years. Over the past 9 years Rob has grown the Critical Care Reviews project from a stand-alone website to now include a weekly journal watch newsletter, international meeting, annual book and occasional podcast. In addition, Rob is also the Editor-in-Chief of Critical Care Horizons, a platinium open access critical care journal he co-founded. Rob is a strong believer in the principle that scientific advancement should be accessible to all, and works towards this goal via both Critical Care Reviews and Critical Care Horizons.
